‘Cosmic Trigger’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist James Bates. From a limited edition of 150, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist James Bates finds inspiration in the most unlikely of places: from junk shops to Disney films, scrap-heaps to sketch books, Bates’ wide artistic scope is reflected in his multi-media art pieces, which range from illustration to animation, advertising to graphic design. Bates’ aesthetic is singular: his prints are bold and fearless, mindful of composition and colour in a striking way.
‘Cosmic Trigger’ is reminiscent of Warhol’s iconic ‘Double Elvis’, with its colourful replication of a revolver, multilayered for a sense of dynamic movement. It’s a piece that centres around strong composition and striking colour palette to powerful effect: this is contemporary print making at its best.
