‘Audrey Hepburn I’ is a 6 Colour Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist David Studwell. Printed onto Somerset Satin Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
David Studwell is a contemporary artist whose work explores the traditional print-making processes and cultures of the twentieth century. Taking photographic images of some of the century’s greatest icons and celebrities - from Al Capone to Marilyn Monroe - Studwell revitalises them with washes of retro colour, for a distinctly Pop-Art feel.
‘Audrey Hepburn I’ depicts and black and white photograph of the eponymous Hollywood starlet, with colourised sections in sky blue and blush pink, while her lips are picked out in pillar-box red.
The saturated shades are reminiscent of the technicolour cinema of the 1940s and 50s: breathtakingly beautiful and vividly compelling.
