2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 50 Artwork Size 8x10
Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten, who ruled during the 18th Dynasty of Egypt (circa 1353-1336 BCE). She is best known for her exquisite beauty and her iconic limestone bust, which was discovered in 1912 and is now displayed at the Neues Museum in Berlin. In his reinterpretation of Nefertiti's famous bust, contemporary artist Adam Lister has created a giclee print titled "Nefertiti" using his signature pixelated, 8-bit style. Lister's artwork captures the essence of the original sculpture while showcasing his own unique artistic vision. The print features Queen Nefertiti's profile rendered in simplified geometric forms, with distinct pixelation bringing a modern and digital aspect to this ancient work of art. A giclee print is a high-quality reproduction of an original artwork, created using a specialized inkjet printer. The process involves spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto archival-quality paper resulting in a long-lasting, vibrant, and highly detailed print. This method allows art enthusiasts to appreciate and collect Adam Lister's interpretation of "Nefertiti" at a more accessible price point than an original painting.
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.
