‘In My Heart’ is a 25 Colour Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist David Spiller. Printed onto 400gsm Somerset Smooth Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 90 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist David Spiller is known for his nostalgic Pop-Art inspired prints, blending the punchy colours, bold, iconic imagery, and typographical sensitivities of the 1960s art movement, with a clean, and often deceptive, simplicity.
Spiller’s prints are finished with a final, top layer, where hand-written song lyrics and colourful doodles are scrawled over the striking images for a brilliantly unique and distinctive aesthetic. ‘In My Heart’ depicts the word ‘LOVE’, the letters stacked together in a cube formation, using a bold, black, 1950s-esque type.
Over the monochrome image, Spiller has added his characteristic scribblings: lyrics from Westside Story, The Beatles, and The Troggs; CND signs, love-hearts and smiling faces; discs and blotches of colourful paint, all coalesce in this romantic, nostalgic and simply compelling creation of contemporary visual art.
