The work of Daniel Mernagh is fast becoming notorious in the contemporary art world. Merging graffiti, street-style, with skilled digital techniques, Mernagh recreates iconic figures, past and present, in his own, inimitable aesthetic. ‘Kate 2016’ depicts Britain’s best-loved supermodel, Kate Moss, rendered in graphic, spay-can style. Turned towards the viewer, Moss, in a soft palette of pinks and yellows, and wearing a dress of deep, midnight-blue, is compelling. Like an energetic Pollock painting, the image is awash with messy paint flecks, which merge to emphasise the striking beauty of Mernagh’s subject. A stunning exercise in street-meets-canvas, ‘Kate 2016’ turns icon into iconography, to unequivocal success.
