‘Who You Gonna Call Now (Ghostbusters)’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Mark Davies. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemuhle Textured Fine Art Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 45 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Mark Davies is a contemporary British artist, whose limited edition print work reflects his lifelong fascination with the art of telling stories. Taking inspiration from the dark fables of Hans Christian Anderson and the Brothers Grimm, Davies draws on the Renaissance art of Piero Della Francesco and Giuseppe Acrimbolodo, and the surreal aesthetic of Salvador Dali, to create a singularly beautiful and intensely hypnotic series of prints.
In ‘Who You Gonna Call Now (Ghostbusters)’, Davies has powerfully captured the magic and the ambience of the cult 1980s action film. The print depicts the Ghostbusters HQ, moments after the team have abandoned their mission to save the residents of NYC. Ethereal specks of light dance around the deserted space, traces of ghosts in Proton green flicker in the air, smashed computers, opened filing cabinets and fading murals, all combine to create a powerful mood for an unfamiliar take on the classic film.
With a sensitivity to light and colour, Davies’s print is reminiscent of the oil paintings of the great masters, deftly telling a story within a single, beautiful snapshot.
