‘Lemme’ is a Giclée print by Brighton artist Simon Dixon. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Velvet Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is embossed and numbered.
Simon Dixon was a Brighton-based artist and print maker, whose fine art pieces centred around icons of the twentieth century. Dixon’s love of pop culture and deep interest in twentieth century history combine in a truly distinctive aesthetic: referencing 1960s Pop Art, his paintings are a big, bold and colourful reworking of the traditional portrait.
‘Lemme’ - with its smart, homophone title - depicts three pop-ified portraits of the Motorhead singer, each one washed with a different combination of vibrant colour blocking. Like the images in a flicker book, each portrait progresses until Lemmy is winking at the viewer. An iconic work of art, Dixon has captured the essence of the metal singer, creating a modern-day print to rival Warhol’s Marilyn.
