    Mike Giant Invader Green Blue Silkscreen Print by Mike Giant

    Invader Silkscreen Print by Mike Giant Hand-Pulled 3-Color on Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork. 2023 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 100 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print Tattoo Examples & Iconography Like Skull Skeleton Egyptian Brain Woman Sports Car. Decoding the 'Invader Green Blue Silkscreen Print' by Mike Giant The 'Invader Green Blue Silkscreen Print' by Mike Giant is a bold statement in pop art, street art, and graffiti artwork. This hand-pulled 3-color silkscreen print on fine art paper is part of a limited edition series, with only 100 pieces in existence, each one signed and numbered by the artist himself. Created in 2023, the 18x24 artwork encapsulates myriad iconographic elements that Mike Giant is renowned for: tattoo examples, an Egyptian figure, a human brain, a female portrait, and a sports car, all executed with a striking green and blue color palette. Mike Giant's Artistic Lexicon in 'Invader' Mike Giant's artistic lexicon is a confluence of various influences, from tattoo art's graphic sharpness to Egyptian iconography's symbolic depth. The 'Invader' print serves as a canvas for these diverse elements to form a cohesive narrative. The juxtaposition of a modern sports car with the ancient Egyptian figure speaks to the timelessness of human fascination with progress and power. Meanwhile, including a detailed human brain and the haunting image of a skull evoke a contemplation of human consciousness and mortality. The female portrait, rendered in a classic pop art style, along with the stylized text and motifs, is reminiscent of vintage advertisements and propaganda art. These elements collectively critique consumerism, fame, and the commodification of human values and identity. It reflects street pop art's potential to communicate complex messages within visually arresting imagery. Craftsmanship in Silkscreen Printing The 'Invader Green Blue Silkscreen Print' craftsmanship reflects Mike Giant's dedication to traditional art-making techniques. Silkscreen printing, a method with roots in early 20th-century industrial and graphic arts, has been embraced by artists within pop art and street art for its ability to produce vibrant, crisp images that capture the dynamism of urban life. In this print, the hand-pulled technique ensures that each piece is unique, imbued with the artist's touch and the subtle variations from manual printing. Symbolism and Narrative in Modern Street Art Symbolism plays a crucial role in the narrative power of the 'Invader' print. Each iconographic element is carefully chosen to represent facets of modern society and the human experience. The skull and skeleton, often associated with danger or mortality, are juxtaposed with symbols of wealth and the pursuit of pleasure, such as money and fast cars. This interplay of symbols provokes a dialogue about the dichotomies present in contemporary life—between life and death, spirituality and materialism, history and progress. The 'Invader Green Blue Silkscreen Print' by Mike Giant, as a piece of street pop art and graffiti artwork, is a testament to the enduring influence of these art forms in contemporary culture. It encapsulates the essence of street art's ability to infiltrate public consciousness with universal and deeply personal messages. For collectors and admirers, the 'Invader' print is not just a visual spectacle; it is an emblem of the power of art to reflect and critique the world we navigate daily.

  • Smiley Blotter Paper Archival Print by Mike Giant

    Mike Giant Smiley Blotter Paper Archival Print by Mike Giant

    Smiley Blotter Paper Limited Edition Archival Pigment Print Art on Perforated Blotter Paper by Mike Giant pop culture LSD artwork. "The Smiley graphic is one of my graffiti throw-ups, a “GI”. I started writing it on walls in the mid-1990s. This is 1 of 6 LSD graphics I illustrated in early 2017 after reminiscing about my days as a regular LSD user (at least once a week). 3 of the 6 graphics in this series were based on real LSD that I ate and sold. The other 3 are things I thought would work great as blotter art. I researched blotter art and found some that I remember eating and selling. The others I made up. They’re really special when compared to what I usually offer and I’ll bet they’ll be worth some money someday as this is the only time I’ve drawn LSD blotter art." - Mike Giant
