‘Vicious Cycle’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist Mason Storm. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Elusive artist Mason Storm creates meticulously detailed prints from a fusion of conventional painting techniques and mediums, cultural iconography, and themes of modernity. His work turns around the traditional portrait, adding in elements form contemporary culture: from music, to TV, to advertising, Storm’s updates are brilliant satirical commentaries on twenty-first century society.
‘Vicious Cycle’ depicts a heavily tattooed man, standing shirtless, with arms folded aggressively, staring out towards the viewer. The life-like quality is astonishing: Storm has rendered all of the sitter’s intricate tattoos in exquisite detail, while his forbidding facial expressions leap from the print with compelling intensity.
