‘OXO Tower Red’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Jayson Lilley. From an open edition, the print is signed by the artist.
Contemporary artist Jayson Lilley works at the forefront of printmaking practices, incorporating painting and collage techniques into his process. His work is known for its urban and architectural focus reproducing iconic structures from the metropolis. His love of modernist, Art Deco and Brutalist architectural design is infectious, bleeding into his own work which is often stark and minimal, with strong impact: stripped back palettes - often concrete shades of grey - complement bold compositional techniques.
‘OXO Tower Red’ depicts the iconic Oxo Tower, rising up against the sky with low buildings crowding the foreground. Lilley has crafted the tower from a minimal palette of black and beige, creating a careful interplay of light and shade, while picking out the Art Deco lettering and the expanse of sky in flat, cherry-red, for a distinctly Pop-Art aesthetic.
