Vintage Vogue Artworks

Audrey_SMALL
This work started me on the course to create the series of works “Vintage Vogue” which resulted in a solo exhibition at Rook & Raven Gallery in 2012.
More of the works from the series, which I still add to now and again, below.
Likely my best known artwork: “Audrey”, ballpoint pen & spray paint on paper, 2010.
It’s been featured on TV a couple of times as well as a magazine here and there. A limited edition of 100 prints sold out quite fast too.
You can view a video of the making of this artwork on YouTube here.

A limited edition of Giclee prnts (below middle) of this artwork sold out, so in 2014 I created a limited edition of lightbox prints from it (below right). Still some available.

“Audrey Sunglasses” & “Audrey Vibes”

I’m often asked why Audrey Hepburn features so much in my work. A boring short answer is that it’s because there is a huge range of imagery of her that is accessible both online and in print to work from. More so than most other people during that period in time.
A better short answer is that it’s because she represents classy (her being English is important to me also) effortless style that we don’t get these days.
