‘Young Sid’ is a mixed media original by contemporary artist Dan Pearce. Set onto aluminium and enclosed in a white boxed frame, the one-ff piece is signed by the artist.
Dan Pearce - master of mixed media printing - was recently featured in London’s Shortlist magazine as one of the UK’s most collectable emerging artists. Such an endorsement needs little elaboration: the works speak for themselves. Bold and confident, his prints take inspiration from celebrity culture, street-style, and pop art, blending elements of fine art to create an iconic aesthetic that carefully blends new, digital media with old-school techniques.
‘Young Sid’ builds layers of thick paint over a photograph of the iconic Sid Vicious, creating an anarchic Union Jack over the Sex Pistol’s face. Set within the box frame, Pearce has added a photographic trim, depicting images of Sid and the band, as well as type and graphics from the albums.
The final result is breathtaking: glossy and heavily textured, the layers of marbled acrylic and spray-paint fuse together to create a truly beautiful print and a tribute worthy of the charismatic punk musician.
