‘Eye For an Eye’ is a mixed media Screen Print by contemporary art collective Prefab77. Comprised of acrylic, spray-paint, and stencil, multilayered onto 300gsm Somerset Paper, the print is an original and is signed by the artist.
Art collective Prefab77 take contemporary street art to new heights - literally. Their urban artworks to-date include awe-inspiring paste-ups in Newcastle and Brighton, each spanning the size of a three storey building. Their work relies on heavy texture, using collage techniques, thick application of gloss, and bounteous coatings of spray-paint, to create bold, busy and beautiful prints.
‘Eye For an Eye’ depicts the photorealist profile of a woman, set against a soft grey background and surrounded by a kaleidoscopic array of monochrome patterns, type, and graphics, which create an abstract headdress that shades into attire. Hints of colour pepper the print, from bright pink lipstick and eyeshadow, to scatterings of aerosol pigment and gentle washes of soft blue. It’s a piece that’s rich in texture and design: a triumph of contemporary street-to-canvas aesthetics.
