‘Birds of Paradise’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Tom Camp. From a limited edition of 30, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Tom Camp is known for his colourful, illustrative prints, bringing a touch of knowing naivety to the contemporary print world. Reworking familiar imagery from pop culture, Camp has an eye for colour and composition, that allows his stripped back, consciously simple aesthetic to shine. ‘Birds of Paradise’ draws on the rich and colourful naivety of Fauvist styles, gesturally reminiscent of a Matisse or Gaugin with its textured depiction of the natural world.
Two, brilliantly plumed red birds perch upon spindly branches, backed by a glowing sunset of deep purples, hot pinks and splashes of golden yellow. Bold, beautiful and high-impact, ‘Birds of Paradise’ is contemporary print-making at its most mesmerising.
