‘Mon Ami’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Richard Levine. From a limited edition of 50 the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Richard Levine is a contemporary, graphic artist whose work seamlessly fuses the abstract with the figurative for a hallucinogenic, twenty-first century aesthetic. Playing with geometrical structures, deeply reminiscent of the technological networks that form computer generated images, Levine combines bright blocks of colour with dimension-bending shapes and graphics, to explore the topology of iconic, cultural icons.
‘Mon Ami’ depicts a French Bulldog, staring unblinkingly out towards the viewer, a golden chain draped around its neck. Set against a glittering, black background, Levine has swathed the dog in a gold and turquoise rococo pattern, bringing texture, light, and illusionistic motion into beautiful union for a hypnotic and tactile revision of the flat, printed image.
