‘Death Of Buckley’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Tim Doyle. This is the 6th issue of the print, and is from a limited edition of 200, signed and numbered by the artist.
Meet Tim Doyle, contemporary illustrator, print-maker and king of ‘nerd-cool’. Drawing inspiration from a life-long love of comic books and video games, Doyle creates prints of inimitable style that incorporate cultural icons - from the music industry to art-house film - into a graphic aesthetic like no other.
‘Death Of Buckley’ takes cult film The Royal Tenenbaums and creates a striking print, in the detailed, illustrative style of a graphic novel. The iconic Tenenbaum mansion fills the image, and several of the key characters can be glimpsed through the windows and on the street. Doyle depicts the climactic scene of Buckley - the family dog’s - death, as he is flattened - tragicomically - by a sports car. It’s a powerful snapshot, filled with painstaking detail, for a compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
