‘Nasty Coffee Showcard’ is a limited edition work from contemporary artist Eddy Bennett. Printed onto 320gsm Card, the print is from an edition of 3 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Eddy Bennett is an internationally acclaimed British artist, whose typographical prints and originals are deeply reminiscent of the early Pop Art styles of Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi. True to Pop form, Bennett’s work turns around themes of consumerism and advertising, using collage techniques and bright, bold colours to evoke the nostalgia of retro branding. ‘Nasty Coffee Showcard’ resembles a brightly coloured showcard, advertising ‘nasty coffee’ for ‘only 99 pence’. Bennett’s print brings together graphic types and colours, symbols and motifs, transforming the pure kitsch of the tacky advertising board into a truly innovative work of art.
