‘David’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Dirty Hans. From a limited edition of 40, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Dirty Hans cites Toulouse-Lautrec and Lichtenstein amongst his greatest influences: an unlikely pairing of art greats, the result is Dirty Hans’ own unique and striking aesthetic, by turns gritty and poppy, in artful measures. His work riffs off 1950s pop culture, from music to movies to magazines, updating Pop Art styles with an innovative combination of acrylic and spray-paint on canvas, merged with digital techniques.
‘David’ depicts Michelangelo’s infamous sculpture, emblazoned with colourful, renaissance artwork. Exploiting light and shadow, Dirty Hans has created astonishing depth and dimensionality, setting the statuesque image against a greyscale variation of the same Italian imagery that covers David’s body. A breathtaking revision of the antiquated art form.
