  • Product description

    SOLD In this large painting, Grandpa Smoky Brown employed his signature folk style to create a contemporaneous warning not to “eat the apple” on Y2K. A man and a woman, representations of the Biblical Adam and Eve, hold an apple with a toothy grin as a camouflaged snake lingers nearby. Heart-shaped apples dot the perimeter of the piece.


    About the Artist:
    Smoky Brown (1919-2005)
    was an enigmatic folk artist from Dayton, Ohio who valued art and service to his Columbus community. Larger than life, Smoky was a storyteller and wove his stories into his paintings. Smoky Brown created art because he enjoyed it, and did not pursue a larger platform past his regional recognition. He regularly played with materials and methodology due to necessity, but his inventiveness only fueled his process and drive.
