A favourite of mine, David Studwell reworks classic imagery into pop art. In this case, creating the Brigitte Bardot print range.
It’s a fairly simple formula on the face of it, but that’s likely to a case of it looking simple but being anything but. After all, if it was so easy more people would be doing it and showing it off. But only David Studwell creates art quite like this.
The basis of all the collections (yes there is a number out there) is to source an iconic image of someone supremely cool, add in some filters and colour and recreate it as a piece of pop art in a larger format. The end result is what you see here. But do have a look around for other icons – I have featured a few in the past.
But right now I am focusing on Brigitte Bardot and this classic 1960s image of the French screen legend. She has been reimagined in various shades, with each a limited edition of just 10, with the prints signed and numbered by the artist. The end results really are a joy to behold.
Each of the completed silkscreen prints is sized at 90cm x 85cm and if you want one, £585 is the price. Not cheap I know, but this is ‘proper’ art and something that will look amazing in a frame in your home for years to come. Icons like this don’t really go out of fashion.
Oh yes, if you want something with more colour, so check out the original Bardot range by Studwell too, which is very different and actually a lot cheaper too,
