‘LOVE’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist and fashion designer Gil Carvalho. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemüle German Etching paper, the print is from a limited edition of 25 and has been signed and numbered by the artist.
Gil Carvalho boldly brings fashion to the world of art. A graduate from The London College of Fashion and shoe designer for the likes of Madonna, Kylie and Fergie, Carvalho creates outlandish, brightly coloured prints that centre around the iconic (be that the Hermès Birkin Bag or the Queen herself). Carvalho’s stylish prints are conceived through a range of media, including screen-printing, photography and digital art, to create an utterly desirable aesthetic.
‘LOVE’ contrasts simplicity of composition against strong use of colour for maximum impact. On a bright, pillar-box red background, Carvalho has created a simple heart shape in tones of cool blue and inky black. An artful blend of digital and tactile techniques, the print has all the raw immediacy of a quick brush stroke, with all the intensity of contemporary digitised art. We love.
