‘Mighty Mountain’ is a screen print by contemporary illustrator Chris Keegan. Printed onto 250gsm Southbank Smooth Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed by the artist.
Camberwell College of Art graduate and London based illustrator Chris Keegan creates screen prints of exceptional beauty and dynamism. For Keegan, the art of print is all about “mixing the old with the new” incorporating “the explosion of technology and gadgets of the last ten years” into painterly styles to rejuvenate the tradition of the screen print. ‘Mighty Mountain’ showcases Keegan’s extraordinary ability to merge method and media for a truly refreshing take on the art of print. Using only five shades of green, ’Mighty Mountain’ depicts a microcosmic world of mountainous forest land, contained within a verdant orb. The piece works with a process of inky layering, creating a rich landscape, filled with trees, foliage and exotic wildlife. ‘Mighty Mountain’ is busy and bold, capturing the sublime beauty of nature through a mastery of artifice.
