‘Liberty of London’ is a 4 colour Screen Print by contemporary artist Claire Halifax. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Claire Halifax is an artist who understands the beauty of print making. Using highly skilled processes, with an impressive talent for illustration, Halifax creates prints of rich and meticulous detail, with design, pattern and colour playing crucial roles in the overall aesthetic.
Halifax takes inspiration from her immediate surroundings, drawing on places of special significance in her own life to create busy, bustling cityscapes, filled with vibrancy and character. ‘Liberty of London’ depicts Soho’s unique department store. With an artistic perspectival approach, Halifax captures the entire building, illustrated with painstaking detail in black ink.
For delicate contrast, Halifax has added bursts of colour in the store’s flower department, and in the hanging plants that dress the facade. Set against a William Morris-esque background, in shades of soft, duck-egg blue, ‘Liberty of London’ beautifully captures one of London’s most iconic buildings.
