‘Signals’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist James Bates. From a limited edition of 150, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist James Bates finds inspiration in the most unlikely of places: from junk shops to Disney films, scrap-heaps to sketch books, Bates’ wide artistic scope is reflected in his multi-media art pieces, which range from illustration to animation, advertising to graphic design. Bates’ aesthetic is singular: his prints are bold and fearless, mindful of composition and colour in a striking way.
‘Signals’ is a bricolage of erratic and eccentric parts: antiquated illustrations of birds and butterflies, flowers and mushrooms, are layered over sections of cartography, images, icons and bright blocks of colour. Bates’ eye for powerful composition is exceptionally focussed, resulting in a uniquely harmonious and beautifully balanced assemblage. This is contemporary print making at is best.
