‘Beauty on Beauty - Sid’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Dirty Hans. From a limited edition of 40, 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.
‘Sid’ depicts the iconic Sid Vicious, decked out in shredded white vest, studded belt and familiar padlock necklace, standing against a colourful orange background of exotic flowers. Like a punk chameleon, Sid’s skin assumes the design and colours of the wallpaper: this truly is beauty on beauty.
