‘I’m An Artist, What’s Your Problem?’ is a 7 Colour Screen Print by acclaimed British artist Magda Archer. Printed onto 410gsm Somerset Tub Sized Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Illustrator and contemporary artist Magda Archer produces an aesthetic like no other. Inspired by all things kitsch and colourful, her work draws heavily on the Pop-Art greats, injecting a dose of its own surreal character along the way, for sensational results. Fun and frivolous, colourful and fruity, Archer’s prints are full of an alluring charm that we just can’t get enough of. ‘I’m An Artist, What’s Your Problem?’ shows a blonde, beret-clad girl, a paint palette and brush in each hand, as she laughs towards the viewer.
The image looks like the cover of a 1950s children’s book - with its lavender-blue background and illustrative style - but the aesthetic is jarred against the titular words, which hover beside the girl for a twist of postmodern irony. It’s a smart piece: both visually appealing and comically endearing, ‘I’m An Artist, What’s Your Problem?’ continues the artistic lineage that begun with the Pop-Art movement, working kitsch and collage techniques into a contemporary mode to striking effect.
