‘Ruby Wild’ is a Giclée print by Brighton artist Simon Dixon. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Velvet Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 175 and is embossed and numbered.
Simon Dixon was a Brighton-based artist and print maker, whose fine art pieces centred around icons of the twentieth century. Dixon’s love of pop culture and deep interest in twentieth century history combine in a truly distinctive aesthetic: referencing 1960s Pop Art, his paintings are a big, bold and colourful reworking of the traditional portrait.
‘Ruby Wild’ depicts the pop-ified portrait of a glamorous woman: against a pillar-box-red background, the woman peers to the side of the frame, looking sultry in her leopard print coat, groomed black hair, heavy eye make-up, and pouting red lips. Flashes of dynamic yellow complete the print, for an iconic work of contemporary Pop Art.
