Urban artist Dscreet loves owls. A cute quirk, Dscreet’s iconic owl image crops up across his work and can be seen around the world on his canvas of choice: the walls and shutters of city streets. It’s a powerful icon, filled with childish charm while, at the same time, suffused with an uneasy, haunting quality: once you’ve glimpsed Dscreet’s owl, you’re not likely to forget it anytime soon.
‘The Look of Love - Black’ brings together Burt Bacharach’s timeless melody with the modern cult of online dating: the song title is spelt out in binary code, using white cursive script on a black background. The white owl hovers in the centre of the print, staring fixedly out, as if in judgement over the state of twenty-first century courtship.
