‘David Bowie Cafe Royal - Red’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Vincent McEvoy. Printed onto 300gsm Fabriano Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Vincent McEvoy has been passionate about Silkscreen printing since his work in the 1980s with the Godfather of all print making: Andy Warhol. Since then, the tactile practice, as well as Pop Art broadly, has continued to inform McEvoy’s aesthetic, which is driven by icons of the twentieth century.
‘David Bowie Cafe Royal - Red’ depicts a candid portrait of David Bowie, photographed by McEvoy himself at London’s Café Royal in 1973.
Brilliantly composed, the image is set within a perfect circle, which sits at the centre of a white square, and McEvoy has washed the black and white photograph with a bold, retro shade of red. As McEvoy has said: “This screen print edition is my contribution to collective memory of this talented artist.”
