Hard Times and Soft Furnishings is a collection of paintings by the artist Alan fears.
These paintings offer a humorous and lively dimension to a world in which such qualities are very often missing.
Alan Fears (b. 1974) is an emerging British artist who was shortlisted for the Nottingham Castle Open in 2016.
'A naive artist, a graphic artist, a pop artist... I am a slice of each. My style is simple and direct. The theme in most of my art revolves around reminding myself, and everybody else, how great and stupid humans can be and therefore how great and stupid life can be.'
