‘Brewing Bad’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Tom Camp. Printed onto 300gsm Recycled White Stock Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 30, and 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.
Reminiscent of classic, 1950s American illustrative styles, ‘Brewing Bad’ depicts Walter White and Jesse from the iconic TV series Breaking Bad, reclining in their deckchairs in the Albuquerque desert, as their camper van nestles on the horizon. But forget crystal meth: the only drug addiction here is to the hot mugs of steaming tea that Walt and Jesse cheerily chink with one another. Rendered in sketchy monochrome, ‘Brewing Bad’ is contemporary print-making at its most mesmerising.
