‘Gorgeous Chaos (Vintage Pink)’ is a Silkscreen print by graphic artist Steve Smythe. Printed onto Somerset Paper, the piece is an original and is signed by the artist.
The work of Steve Smythe is flavoured by his background as a graphic designer. Smythe’s prints - which make deft use of mixed-media techniques, collage styles, and material innovation - are distinguished by their bold use of colour and compositional practices, crossing the line from graphics to art in the style of early Warhol or Paolozzi. ‘Gorgeous Chaos (Vintage Pink)’ employs bricolage technique to exceptional success. An array of magazine cut outs, carefully torn and rearranged, are layered over the black and white face of a woman. Using only a palette of faded vintage pink, inky black and cyan blue, Smythe brings image, colour and typography into perfect compositional union, for a for a truly beautiful work of contemporary art.
