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 - Marilyn’ depicts The King in his young days, posing with a toothy grin in a black and white portrait. Scheinmann has artfully merged Elvis’s image with Warhol’s enduringly iconic Marilyn: the starlet’s soft, golden waves frame the singer’s face; a beauty spot sits above his mouth; and big, glitzy earrings adorn his ears. The result is mesmerising: an artful intertwining of two of the twentieth century’s most iconic figures.
