Contemporary artist David Scheinmann brings his award winning background as a cutting edge commercial photographer to the world of art. His limited edition prints incorporate photographic elements with mixed media and silkscreen detailing to explore issues of cultural identity and popular iconography. ‘Elvis - Flag’ depicts The King in his young days, pre-fame, posing in a saturated, black and white portrait. On top of the photograph, Scheinmann has half-overlaid Jasper Johns’ iconic American flag painting, adding two round circles above the singer’s head to resemble cartoonish, Mickey Mouse ears: an artful merging of some of the most iconic motifs from twentieth century American culture, captured with Scheinmann’s keen sensitivity for colour and composition.
