’The Funfair’ is a Giclee print by illustrative artist NadeemArt. The print is from a limited edition of 15. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching paper.
The work of contemporary artist NadeemArt is captivating in its intensity. His prints feature 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 Funfair’ reflects NadeemArt’s background as a Hollywood scenery artist: like a still from a film, the Nowhere Man stands in the midst of a barren, desert-like vista, looking out, towards a distant funfair. NadeemArt uses a soft, hazy palette of blue-green, to achieve an intensely scenic sense of place. The Nowhere Man’s ever-hunched pose, as he stands alone at the threshold of such pleasure, evokes a sense of both sadness and hope, in a way which is profoundly moving. There is real power in the image, not only aesthetically - through the filmic use of colour and composition - but emotionally, in its compelling poignancy and stirring sentiment. The print is signed and numbered by the artist.
