‘I Didn’t Mean It Like That’ is a Giclée print with a 9 layer Screen Print overlay by contemporary street artist Ben Slow. Hand finished with gold leaf, the print is from a limited edition of 31 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Ben Slow is, in his own words, “bringing fine art to the streets.” Slow’s canvas of choice may be the urban exteriors, but his print work allows for a subtlety of expression and an experimentation with style and medium that the street scene precludes. His beautiful portraits tell a story, each one a profound glimpse on the human condition.
‘I Didn’t Mean It Like That’ showcases Slow’s highly skilled and unique style: depicting the face of a woman, the print is all about technique, creating a striated surface of graphite etchings, layered against soft, gold leaf. Haunting and breathtakingly beautiful, the print has a delicate antiquated quality, but with a distinctly contemporary, street-art edge.
