’Burnt Gold’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary art collective Toasters. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Satin Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 25 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Three artists, one Toaster image: Toasters is at once art collective and urban project, harnessing the modern, street trope of anonymity to strengthen the impact of its visual concept. A charmingly simple stencil, the image has been repeated since 1999 all over the world, on stickers and posters, banners, street corners, music festivals, sports stadiums, museum walls - even on toasters, for some real meta action.
‘Burnt Gold’ depicts the iconic image, rendered in soft gold tones against hard black outlines. Emitting from the toast slots, and gathering at the bottom edge of the print, Toasters have created smokey stains, to create the illusion of burnt toast. The realism of the smoke contrasts brilliantly against the naive, illustrative stencil image of the device for a visually arresting piece of contemporary art.
