‘Bill’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Minty. Printed onto 1.4mm thick Bristol Board, the print is from a limited edition of 18 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Minty is known for his wheat paste-ups, which have enlivened the streets of Brighton with their bold and brave aesthetic. Instantly recognisable, Minty’s colourful work integrates cultural symbolism with absurdism and eroticism, often branded with the three, simple words, ‘I Love You’, and his own, stencilled sign-off.
‘Bill’ depicts the familiar face of Bill Murray, popified in flat tones of peach, sunshine-yellow and inky black, and plastered with a repeated rococo pattern. A single tear falls from one of the actor’s eyes, while a constructivist-style triangle covers the other, both in a shade of sky-blue, for a fantastically harmonious colour-clash, which captures all of the raw and dynamic energy of street art in a limited edition print.
