‘SUFUCKINPREME’ is a Silkscreen print by acclaimed contemporary artist RYCA (aka Ryan Callanan). From a limited edition of 65, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
The work of RYCA has developed something of a reputation in the contemporary art world: the pop-art-meets-street-art style has established RYCA as a leading figure in the evolving street scene and a name to watch. Drawing on his early career as a sign writer, Ryan Callanan (the man behind the brand) creates graphic, typographical pieces which are distinguished by a merging of cultural references, taking one image or concept and transplanting it into the context of another to create a sense of off-kilter familiarity.
‘SUFUCKINPREME’ plays with the well-known, red and white logo of the skate clothing brand ‘Supreme’. For tongue-in-cheek effect and bold, artistic impact, Callanan has elongated the word, inserting ‘fuckin’ into its centre to create a wry comment on the contemporary art world and its close relationship to branding and consumerism.
