‘Brilliant Sky’ is a screen print by contemporary illustrator Chris Keegan. Printed onto 250gsm Southbank Smooth Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed by the artist.
Camberwell College of Art graduate and London based illustrator Chris Keegan creates screen prints of exceptional beauty and dynamism. For Keegan, the art of print is all about “mixing the old with the new” incorporating “the explosion of technology and gadgets of the last ten years” into painterly styles to rejuvenate the tradition of the screen print. ‘Brilliant Sky’ showcases Keegan’s extraordinary ability to merge method and media for a truly refreshing take on the art of print. Inspired by the majesty of multi-faceted cloud formation, ‘Brilliant Sky’ depicts layer upon layer of dense, swirling cloud, in an extraordinary colour palette which merges from raspberry pink, to forest green, to sunshine yellow. A small strip of dusky blue comprises the thin horizon line of the land at the print’s edge, far away and minimal against Keegan’s lofty sky. The print is bold and bewitching, capturing the sublime beauty of nature through a mastery of artifice.
