‘Golden Years - Diamond Dust’ is a hand printed Silkscreen by acclaimed artist Trafford Parsons. From a limited edition of 100, the piece is printed onto Cartridge Paper and hand finished with diamond dust.
Trafford Parsons’ extraordinary and long-spanning career has made its mark on the art world. Avowedly anti-establishment, Parsons work mines popular culture, from B movies to B sides, and brings an energetic street-art aesthetic to the familiar icons that haunt his work. ‘Golden Years - Diamond Dust’ depicts a young David Bowie, carefully crafted from Ben-Day dots in golden glitter against white, for texture and luminescence. The piece is symbolic of Parson’s artistic drive, citing the lyric from the eponymous song, "don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel,” as his greatest source of inspiration. It’s a smart, contemporary piece, merging rich, visual appeal with strong conceptual power. The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
