  • The Artist' Unconscious Mind(Self-Portrait Giclee Print by Turf One- Jean LaBourdette

    Turf One- Jean LaBourdette The Artist' Unconscious Mind(Self-Portrait Giclee Print by Turf One- Jean LaBourdette

    Purchase The Artist's Unconscious Mind(Self-Portrait Digital Ultrachrome Giclee Print by Turf One- Jean LaBourdette Artwork Limited Edition Print on Photo Rag Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper Graffiti Pop Street Artist. 2010 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 50 Artwork Size 16x24 The Artist's Unconscious Mind: A Glimpse into Turf One's Psyche "The Artist's Unconscious Mind (Self-Portrait)" is a digital ultra-chrome giclée print by Jean LaBourdette, known in the art world as Turf One. This limited edition print, released in 2010 with only 50 signed and numbered copies, is a quintessential example of his foray into street pop art and graffiti artwork. The artwork size of 16x24 inches, printed on Photo Rag Hahnemühle fine art paper, is a testament to Turf One's commitment to quality and his respect for the craft of fine art printing. Symbolism and Technique in Turf One's Giclée Print The piece stands out for its symbolic complexity and meticulous detail, common threads in Turf One's artwork. The choice of a chimpanzee wearing a fez and contemplating a human skull is evocative of the classical theme of 'vanitas,' touching upon the transient nature of life and the pursuit of knowledge. This recurring motif in art history, most famously depicted in Holbein's "The Ambassadors," is given new life and meaning in Turf One's contemporary interpretation. The use of ultra-chrome, a modern printing technique known for its color accuracy and longevity, bridges the gap between traditional fine art mediums and the digital age. This method allows the depth and nuance of Turf One's original paintings to be captured with high fidelity, making the prints true to the artist's vision. Intersecting Street Art and Traditional Imagery Turf One's work often intersects the gritty reality of street art with the intricate and symbolic nature of traditional imagery. "The Artist's Unconscious Mind" is no exception. It offers a commentary on the artist's internal dialogue and the intersection of animalistic instincts with the intellectual pursuit of self-awareness. By juxtaposing the primitive with the enlightened, Turf One presents a tableau ripe for interpretation and reflection. The fez, often associated with Eastern mysticism and philosophy, suggests a connection between wisdom and the primal aspects of our nature. The chimpanzee's human-like pose and contemplative gaze bring forth a sense of kinship with the animal kingdom, a subtle nod to the evolutionary aspects of human consciousness and artistry. The Influence of Street Pop Art on Turf One's Expression In "The Artist's Unconscious Mind," Turf One incorporates the immediacy and rawness often associated with street pop art and graffiti artwork. The fine art paper chosen for the print adds a tactile quality that echoes the texture of walls that serve as canvases in the street art world. Even as a print, the artwork carries the weight and presence of a piece that could adorn an urban landscape, bringing the reflective nature of fine art to the public sphere. Turf One's approach to street art is not about vandalism or territory marking but a deeper exploration of personal and collective identity. His work transcends the typical boundaries of street art, challenging viewers to consider the profound questions of existence and self, all while maintaining a connection to the urban roots of his medium. Collectibility and Impact of Turf One's Limited Edition Prints The collectibility of "The Artist's Unconscious Mind" is heightened by its limited run, making each print a coveted piece for collectors and admirers of Turf One's work. The scarcity of the prints ensures that each piece remains a treasured artifact of the artist's exploration into the depths of the unconscious mind. Like many limited editions, this artwork is more than just a representation of Turf One's artistic talent; it is a vessel for the ideas and themes that permeate his body of work. The print is a physical manifestation of the dialogue between the artist and the audience, a dialogue that continues evolving with each viewing. Reflecting on Turf One's Artistic Journey "The Artist's Unconscious Mind (Self-Portrait)" encapsulates Turf One's journey through street pop art and fine art printing. The print is a mirror reflecting the dual nature of the artist's world - one foot in the raw, expressive world of graffiti and the other in the contemplative, reflective world of fine art. This piece is a testament to the enduring power of art to convey complex ideas and emotions, regardless of the medium. As such, it is a significant work within Turf One's oeuvre, embodying the essence of his artistic spirit and the transformative potential of street pop art.

"This piece was born from the inspiration of a personal struggle I was experiencing with overcoming certain obstacles in my life surrounding addiction. Not just chemical addiction, but addictive thoughts and behaviors that didn't serve my highest good. The lion archetype visited me in my dreams during this time of struggle with addiction. I dreamt I was a lion running with full force through a dense jungle. I had a thick rope in my mouth and as I ran through this jungle people were fighting to grab the free sides of the rope to try and slow me down from running so fast. It was getting snagged and I felt extreme pain in my body. The pain grew to the point my body caught on fire, I could feel my flesh searing. I remember fighting through it and eventually, the pain went away and I kept running forward. Pretty Intense! So I combined my vision of the lion with the mandala to mirror a frequency of courage, strength, and power to its the viewer and the space that it is hung in." - Chris Saunders

There are lots of sacred symbols that are in this piece that was created with the intention to protect the space that it is hung in. During the time I was experiencing some internal shifts that inspired me to create a piece that served as a protective guardian and the Wolf Archetype strongly embodied that quality. The Wolf Archetype to me resembles a symbol of intelligence as well as a fierce guardian. My work is about creating a reflective mirror that allows the viewer to see within themselves and evoke positive internal shifts. I’ve been exploring combining archetypal symbols with Mandalas that serve as symbols of strength to protect the space they are in as well as remind the viewer of their own internal strength and power." - Chris Saunders

I was experiencing a massive shift in my life at the time. I was feeling a pull away from my career as a commercial artist to focus on my own art and I had a lot of fear coming up for me. Usually, when I experience these shifts I do my best to get out of my head and trust my inner guidance. That inner guidance tends to mold those experiences into the form of different animal forms that guide me through that transition. To me, the tiger represents primal instinct and being able to let go and trust yourself and fully trust your intuition. This piece looks about 100 times more amazing when you see it in person, the pics don't really highlight the layers and textural quality of all the inks used." - Chris Saunders

All these elements come together to create a unique visual journey that reflects Marwan Shahin's talent, vision, and innovative approach to pop and street art. His work speaks volumes about the power of art to transcend time and space, to blend the ordinary with the extraordinary, and to illuminate the darkness with the glow of creativity.

Africa
Graffiti art and pop art are two art movements that have gained popularity in recent years. These art movements have been used to express social and political issues, as well as personal stories and experiences. One of the most interesting topics in graffiti art and pop art is Africa. The continent has a rich culture and history that has inspired many artists to create pieces that celebrate its diversity and beauty. Graffiti art is a form of street art that involves painting or drawing on public walls or surfaces. It is often used to express political and social messages, and as a form of protest against authority. Graffiti artists use spray paint, stencils, and other tools to create their art. Pop art, on the other hand, is a movement that emerged in the 1950s and 1960s in the United States and Britain. It uses popular culture, such as advertising and comic books, as inspiration for art. In recent years, graffiti art and pop art have become increasingly popular in Africa. Many artists on the continent have used these art movements to express their own personal experiences, as well as to bring attention to social and political issues affecting their communities. One of the most well-known graffiti artists in Africa is Victor Ash. Born in Portugal, Ash has spent many years living and working in various African countries. His work often explores themes of identity and culture, and he uses a mix of graffiti and pop art techniques to create bold, colorful pieces. In one of his most famous works, he painted a giant astronaut on the side of a building in Johannesburg, South Africa. The piece has become a symbol of hope and progress for the city, which has struggled with poverty and crime in recent years. Another artist who has gained recognition for his graffiti art in Africa is Chifumi. Originally from Zimbabwe, Chifumi is known for his intricate, detailed murals that often incorporate African patterns and symbols. He has painted pieces all over the continent, including in Nigeria, Mozambique, and South Africa. His work often focuses on issues of social justice and human rights, and he uses his art to spark conversation and inspire change. Pop art has also found a home in Africa, with many artists using the movement to create pieces that celebrate African culture and identity. One of the most notable pop artists on the continent is Owusu-Ankomah, who was born in Ghana and now lives and works in Germany. His work is heavily influenced by traditional African symbols and patterns, and he often combines these elements with contemporary pop culture references. Another pop artist who has gained recognition in Africa is Edosa Oguigo. Based in Nigeria, Oguigo uses bright colors and bold patterns to create pieces that celebrate African culture and traditions. His work often incorporates African fabrics and textiles, and he uses these materials to create unique textures and visual effects. Graffiti art and pop art have become important art movements in Africa in recent years. Many artists on the continent are using these movements to express their own personal experiences, as well as to bring attention to social and political issues affecting their communities. From the intricate murals of Chifumi to the bold, colorful pieces of Victor Ash and the pop art of Owusu-Ankomah and Edosa Oguigo, Africa is becoming an increasingly important part of the global art scene. As these artists continue to create and innovate, they are helping to shape the future of graffiti art and pop art in Africa and beyond.
