‘Reflections - Clint Eastwood’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Dirty Hans. From a limited edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Dirty Hans cites Toulouse-Lautrec and Lichtenstein amongst his greatest influences: an unlikely pairing of art greats, the result is Dirty Hans’s own unique and striking aesthetic, by turns gritty and poppy, in artful measures. His work riffs off 1950s pop culture, from music to movies to magazines, updating Pop Art styles with an innovative combination of acrylic and spray-paint on canvas, merged with digital techniques.
‘Reflections - Clint Eastwood’ shows a young Eastwood, a pistol in his hand pointed toward the pane of glass behind which he appears to sit. In the window, Dirty Hans has reflected a range of images in the world beyond, from hazy depictions of Eastwood in his role as Dirty Harry, to contemporary signage, from ‘Starbucks’ to ‘free wifi’.
An inspired means of combining iconic portraiture with graphic allusion, Dirty Hans’s black and white ‘Reflections’ series merges vintage style with state of the art, digital technique for a compelling, old-meets-new aesthetic.
