Katy Perry & Will Cotton's Candyland

The aptly named Will Cotton's paintings full of candy cotton coloured fantasy worlds are sickly sweet and full of nostalgia and all the nice things things in life. I'm pretty sure everyone would recognise his work now, since he was the art director for Katy Perry's California Gurls video and the same aesthetic is carried through all of his paintings and sculptures, spanning many years.
I'm basically obsessed with treats and cakes, overly sugary things and pretty decorations, as well as fantasy worlds, utopias and pretty ladies, therefore Mr Cotton just serves it all to me on a well iced cake platter.
Here's some Saturday sugar.
