‘Ice Cream Plaza’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary British artist Bonnie and Clyde. From a limited edition of 75, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Bonnie and Clyde has mastered the art of mixed media collage, blending photography with fine art until the lines of distinction disappear. Her brightly coloured brushstrokes - often depicting modernist architecture, expanses of sea, and palm-tree lined streets - are reminiscent of early Hockney fine art, given an up-to-date twist with a bricolage technique and photomontage, employed to unrivalled effect.
‘Ice Cream Plaza’ depicts an elegant vista of Havana, Cuba - but not as you know it. An off-kilter collage of photographs creates a dizzying, almost surreal version of the Cuban city, which the artist has coloured in soft, 1950s ice cream shades and finished with a motif of black and white parlour tiles, in a knowing nod to the capital’s successful, socialist ice cream industry.
