‘Studio 1’ 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.
‘Studio 1’ is an arrestingly striking print. Against an inky-black background, the piece depicts the EP sleeve of the Mr Foundation 1968 single ‘Reggae Rumble’, using only a palette of brick-red against white. Truly iconic, this is contemporary Pop Art at its very best.
