‘Princess Diana’ is a mixed media piece by contemporary artist VeeBee. Hand finished on torn paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 10 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist VeeBee is something of a mystery: keeping their identity concealed, VeeBee lets their work speak for itself, distinct from the ‘cult of the artist’ complex that informs so much in the world of modern art. Engimatic though they may be, there is no puzzle as far as their work is concerned. Mixed media pieces, which use collage and bricolage techniques, as well as digital forms and painstakingly hand applied detailing, are bold, striking and cutting edge.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary Princess Diana’s death, VeeBee’s poignant print, ‘Princess Diana’, depicts a strikingly beautiful portrait of the young Lady Di. Building up from a collage of newspaper prints, magazine articles, photographs, and Diana’s handwritten notes, VeeBee has crafted her face from a stunning range of hand-applied materials, including 24 carat gold, metallic dichroic foils, glitter, and spray paints, adding tiny butterflies to her delicate tiara. Each uniquely finished piece shimmers and sparkles in the light - a perfect fit for a national treasure.
