‘Untitled - Gold Liz Taylor’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Steve Smythe. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Satin Paper, the print is an original and is signed by the artist.
The work of Steve Smythe is flavoured by his background as a graphic designer. Smythe’s prints - which make deft use of mixed-media techniques, collage styles, and material innovation - are distinguished by their bold use of colour and compositional practices, crossing the line from graphics to art in the style of early Warhol or Paolozzi.
‘Untitled - Gold Liz Taylor’ depicts the famous face of Hollywood starlet Elizabeth Taylor, rendered in black and white ben-day dots and washed with an iridescent shade of rose-gold. A striking use of 1960s Pop Art techniques, brought up-to-date with a contemporary twist, Smythe has created a distinctive and arresting aesthetic.
