From time to time, we all face the problem of choosing a gift for our family, friends or colleagues and it’s important to know what type of souvenir this very person needs. Men prefer serious presents, and one of things they may like is a fancy canvas reflecting their interests. Both young boys and successful businessmen like weapons, so this theme is great for gift like this. Here are five gun paintings for sale that will make an elegant and impressive present for a genuine man.
1. A Half Woman, Half Beast with a Heavy Gun by Esao Andrews
This canvas depicts a young woman in the crimson background holding a machine gun. One half of her body is delicate and tender while the other half represents a beast with fangs and claws. Her outfit is torn on the beast’s side while her women’s half is cloaked with a Moslem veil. This striking and symbolic image will make an exquisite addition to any interior.
2. Gun of Wisdom by Leonid Afremov
Another example of gun paintings here takes us back to a distant epoch when weapons were thought to be romantic. This still life depicts an old candle-lit table with a retro-style gun lying on a pile of books. Looking at this colorful and elaborately painted canvas, you can really feel yourself in the 18th century. A painting like that will be highly evaluated by a collector of antiques.
3. Comics Gun by Mark Ashkenasi
This simple picture shows a gun in a man’s hand pointed right at you, and to make this scene more severe, the artist added a BANG sign along with a couple of white clouds that appeared after a gunshot. The red and blue stripes in the background enhance similarity with comics while the yellow flash lets you know that the bullet will hit you any second.
4. Australian Commando by Peter Barnes
This elaborate artwork by an Australian painter shows a fully equipped young man who is on guard of his country’s peace. He wears a protective suit and his face is covered by a balaclava helmet. This soldier carries a machine gun and a portable radio set, so we can guess that his war buddies are near and will come to the rescue if needed.
5. The Famous Cat with Gun by Artist Singh
The animal on the canvas is depicted in a rather abstract manner using black, red, blue, green and yellow hues. The cat looks like a rocker because its scattergun resembles a guitar, and he seems to be extracting a tune out of his weapon. This is the case of finding inspiration in war, no matter how many lives it takes.
