‘R2D2 Blue Duo’ is a Silkscreen print by acclaimed artist Trafford Parsons. From a limited edition of 10, no two images are identical, due to the handmade process of silkscreen printing.
Trafford Parsons’ extraordinary and long-spanning career has made its mark on the art world. Avowedly anti-establishment, Parsons work mines popular culture, from B movies to B sides, and brings an energetic street-art aesthetic to the familiar icons that haunt his work. ‘R2D2 Blue Duo’ depicts a dual image of the well-loved droid, each in varying tones of blue and white. Parsons has masterfully drawn from a range of styles and approaches: magically capturing the retro feel of the 1970s, ‘R2D2 Blue Duo’ has overtones of Warhol-esque print repetition, while injecting a little of the contemporary with spray-can techniques. Parsons has used the iconic to create his own icon in the making: a smart, modern piece with boundless visual appeal and strong conceptual power. The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
