‘Brigitte Bardot I’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary print artist David Studwell. Printed onto Magnani Litho Paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 25 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.
‘Brigitte Bardot I’ depicts the iconic French actress, her black and white portrait awash with hand filled technicolour tones, a la Warhol's Marilyn. Yellow-gold hair, bright red lips and purple clothing converge against a bright blue background, for exceptional aesthetic prowess. Delightfully retro, ’Brigitte Bardot I’ is post-Pop Art at its very best.
