‘Slumdog Mexico’ is a striking Giclee print from Danad Design in collaboration with Dissent. This piece is printed on 310gsm William Turner Fine art paper and from a Limited Edition of 25.
Danad Design was founded back in 1958 as an experimental Design company but has remained dormant for more than half a century. More recently Danad has been unearthing previously unseen bodies of work from a remarkable and extensive archive to combine 1920’s and 1930’s imagery and combine with contemporary images – in this particular piece, the works of Dissent.
‘Slumdog Mexico’ - a spin on Slumdog Millionaire – While Slumdog millionaire was based around innocent children in India, ‘Dissent’ ironically uses sentimental images from the 1920’s set against a not so appealing modern backdrop. This piece encompasses a young child, her mother behind her, both with smiles on their faces in a 1920’s illustrative style but with a backdrop of photographic imagery depicting scenes of destruction in Mexico. By combining two styles of imagery, Denand Vs Dessent create a completely new style and new piece of art. This piece is signed and numbered by the artist.
