‘Daredevil Blue’ is a 2 colour Silkscreen Print by graphic artist Steve Smythe. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Paper, the piece is an original and is signed by the artist.
The work of Steve Smythe is flavoured by his background as a graphic designer. Smythe’s prints - which make deft use of mixed-media techniques, collage styles, and material innovation - are distinguished by their bold use of colour and compositional practices, crossing the line from graphics to art in the style of early Warhol or Paolozzi. ‘Daredevil Blue’ employs bricolage technique to exceptional success. Smythe has created a magazine cover by juxtaposing fragments from different vintage comics: beneath Marvel’s familiar Daredevil logo, a Native American figure grapples with a large eagle. Using a high contrast palette of maroon and cyan against white, Smythe brings image, colour and typography into perfect compositional union.
