‘Vibrant Bowie’ is a framed, mixed media original by contemporary artist Dan Pearce. The 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.
‘Vibrant Bowie’ is a beautiful homage to the late great, David Bowie, recaptured with poignancy and artistic sensitivity. Bowie’s black and white portrait fills the frame, his hand raised to his mouth as if to ‘shh’ the viewer, in the famous image from Gavin Evans’ 1995 series.
Pearce has set the image within an ornate, antique frame and painted the whole piece - spilling onto the frame - in exquisite daubs of bright, rainbow-coloured spray paint. The print is exceptionally beautiful, as well as conceptually provocative, pushing questions of borders, in both its use of urban style within an antique setting, and the merging of frame with image: a truly powerful piece of contemporary art.
