‘Reflections - Steve McQueen’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Dirty Hans. From a limited edition of 95, 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 - Steve McQueen’ shows the ‘King of Cool’ behind a bullet-hole ridden pane of glass, while cars, highway signs, and another, hazier image of McQueen are dimly reflected in the window’s surface. An inspired means of combining iconic stars 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.
