2022 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 100 Archival Pigment Print on 290gsm Moab Entrada Fine Art Paper Artwork Size 16x20
"Art in Action" is a stimulating archival pigment fine art limited edition print by the street pop art graffiti legend Jeff Gillette. Manifested on 290gsm Moab Entrada fine art paper, this captivating work of art, sized at 16x20 inches, encapsulates the dynamic intersection of pop art sensibility with the raw, energetic essence of street art. Signed and numbered in a limited edition of just 100 pieces in 2022, this print infuses Gillette's gritty, critical eye into the colorful, bold graphics reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein's iconic style. Gillette's work is characterized by a juxtaposition of the whimsical and the frail, often contrasting Disney-like imagery with dystopian environments, thereby creating a thought-provoking dialogue on consumerism, culture, and the underlying narratives of society. His "Art in Action" piece is a perfect illustration of this theme. The visual pop art allusion in print, which reflects Lichtenstein's famed comic strip-inspired art, is cleverly subverted by Gillette's infusion of a street-wise attitude, adding a layer of satire and commentary to the vibrant explosions and comic book aesthetics that defined a generation's art. The explosive "WHAM!" in the backdrop directly nods to Lichtenstein's style. Yet, Gillette ensures his interpretation stands distinct, inviting contemplation on the implications of such imagery in a world far removed from the innocuous panels of mid-century comic books. This artwork's inclusion of the chaotic character figures provides a stark, reflective contrast to the clean, mechanized precision of Lichtenstein's work, suggesting a deeper narrative beneath the surface gloss of pop culture. By merging the techniques and finish of fine art prints with the visceral impact of street and graffiti art, Gillette bridges two worlds often seen in contrast. His work doesn't just hang on a gallery wall; it invokes the street-level engagement and societal critique that is the hallmark of the most impactful graffiti art. Collectors and enthusiasts of this genre will find "Art in Action" a thought-provoking addition to their collection, offering a piece that is as conversation-starting as it is aesthetically compelling.
