‘C3P0 “I Do Believe They Think I Am Some Kind Of God”’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Trafford Parsons. Printed onto 300gsm Art Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Trafford Parsons’ extraordinary and long-spanning career has made its mark on the art world. Avowedly anti-establishment, Parsons work mines popular culture, from B movies to B sides, and brings an energetic street-art aesthetic to the familiar icons that haunt his work.
‘C3P0 “I Do Believe They Think I Am Some Kind Of God”’ depicts the iconic, Star Wars humanoid, shining in his gold casing against a white background. Parson’s takes the title from a C3P0 quote, which has overtones of contemporary fears of artificial intelligence, and the work is consciously placed in dialogue with the writing of 20th century, Russian scientist Isaac Asimov, whose research on robots has influenced Parson’s aesthetic.
Printed by hand, with iridescent gold ink, the print is a truly stunning work of contemporary art.
