Panda painting in Fifty Shades of Grey

Designer: Robert Pruitt

Director: Sam Taylor-Johnson

Another painting we were asked to identify in Fifty Shades of Grey is the black and white Panda seen on the wall in Christian’s office when Anna first walks in and is greeted by the receptionist. 

The panda is an original art piece by Robert Pruitt, a contemporary American artist. Pruitt’s work is eclectic and ironic, often striving to achieve a spectacle while retaining a sense of social, cultural, or artistic critique. Perhaps best known for his Panda paintings, he creates large-scale canvases featuring pandas rendered in black-and-white and sometimes in glitter.

What do you think of Christian’s choice of art?
