‘Sunshine on a Cloudy Day (Valium Bottle)’ is a Giclée print by iconic artist Anthony ‘H’ Haylock. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Photo Satin paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed by the artist.
Antony ‘H’ Haylock knows how to have a little fun with art. His work centres around iconic, inanimate objects which, as he says, contain “the power to evoke an emotion, a memory, a visual time stamp.” H’s prints artfully blend high-impact compositional technique with tongue-in-cheek wit to produce an appealing aesthetic that combines pop-art themes and styles with fine art skills and a penchant for word play.
‘Sunshine on a Cloudy Day (Valium Bottle)’ reproduces a white valium bottle, carefully rendering all of the text in meticulous paint daubs. Think Warhol’s consumerist-centric Pop Art meets Damien Hirst’s pill penchant, but with its own textured and painterly aesthetic. Bold and brash, dark while fun, the piece is beautifully executed to maximum impact.
