‘A.CE IS THE NEW KATE MOSS - BLACK & GOLD EDITION’ is a screen print by contemporary artist A.CE. From a limited edition of 15, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
London based artist A.CE
is a big name in the UK street art scene, with his memorable, wheat-pasted images filling the urban landscape. Taking inspiration from Dada to Pop Art, collage to the classics, A.CE
develops a sense of radical nostalgia, exploiting fragmentation to confound narrative expectations and to reflect the absurdism of popular culture and consumer driven society. ‘A.CE
IS THE NEW KATE MOSS - BLACK & GOLD EDITION’ depicts the title words, laid out in big, gold type across a black background. There is something inescapably decadent about the complementary colours: a clear jab at the bloated world of high fashion, where luxury reigns supreme and where ‘xxx’ is the new ‘xxx’ at every turn. Witty and satirical, AC.E’s self consciously stylised print is a searing example of art as a mirror held up to reality.
