‘Kurt Cobain’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary print-maker David Studwell. Printed onto Magnani Litho paper, the print is from a limited edition of 25 and has been signed and numbered by the artist.
David Studwell is a contemporary artist, whose work explores the traditional print-making processes and cultures of the twentieth century. Taking photographic images of some of the century’s greatest icons and celebrities - from Al Capone to Marilyn Monroe - Studwell revitalises them with washes of retro colour, for a distinctly Pop-Art feel. ‘Kurt Coabin’ depicts an image of Cobain - but not as we have seen before. A young, fresh faced Kurt Cobain stands for a Police Department mug shot, which Studwell has washed with tones of inky blue and beige. Studwell’s eye is so finely tuned to timelessly iconic and compelling images, while his sensitivity to colour and tonality adds the finishing touch for the perfect pop screen print.
