’The Clown’ is a Giclee print by illustrative artist NadeemArt. The print is from a limited edition of 15. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching paper.
Contemporary artist NadeemArt draws inspiration from his career as a Hollywood scenery creator: his images are inescapably filmic, showcasing his flare for colour and composition, and his prints often resemble carefully crafted snapshots from moments in film. His work features the recurring trope of the Nowhere Man, a faceless and emotive figure, capable of conveying the emotions of both artist and viewer in a subtly haunting way. ‘The Clown’ is moody, evocative and dark, a wash of black with only the minimum of detail picked out in sludgy colour. The Nowhere Man sits in darkness in front of an illuminated, dressing-room mirror hunched - as ever - in a pose of sheer destitution. There is an arresting power in the image, not only aesthetically, but emotionally, in its compelling poignancy and stirring sentiment. The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
