‘Three Words’ is a Screen Print by acclaimed calligraphic artist Seb Lester. Printed by hand, using metallic silver in on black 330gsm Pilke art paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 250 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Seb Lester is the one of the world’s leading calligraphers: having designed type for NASA, Apple, The New York Times, Nike and the 2010 Winter Olympics, graphics don’t get bigger than this. Lester’s passion for the Latin alphabet - which he claims to be “one of mankind’s most beautiful and profound creations” - is infectious, informing all of his striking, limited edition prints.
‘Three Words’ is a profoundly beautiful piece of print work, bringing language and visual art into perfect union. The three words ‘peace’, ‘love’ and ‘hope’ have been crafted from geometric shapes and a nexus of intertwining lines, each letter hand printed in silver ink onto black paper. The interplay of light and dark, shape and type, is bold, compelling, and hypnotic: an extraordinary work of contemporary art.
