Artist James Needham painted a picture of himself and his wife, Alix, in the bathroom — and it’s since gone viral, with nearly 1,000,000 million views on social media.
The Sydney-based artist captured the definition of marriage in his unglamorous painting of him with just a T-shirt on, reading a book on the toilet, while his half-dressed wife brushes her teeth nearby.
The painting depicts the comfort and familiarity between a married couple — the friendship that allows them to let their guard down in the bathroom, and the unconditional love that allows them to accept one another even when at their most vulnerable (on the toilet).
Needham’s painting has gone viral on Imgur — where his wife admitted that he created the work of art after she asked why he had never painted them in the same painting together — as well as Instagram.
Due to popular demand, Needham is now selling prints of the painting online.
