INTRO:

‘Pink Floyd’ is a six colour screen print by London artist David Studwell. David’s work harnesses the spirit of the sixties and seventies, the cult of celebrity and British popular music. It was only natural then that David chose to revisit the psychedelic sixties and create a re-working of a classic Pink Floyd image and firmly transport it into the present.

The original photograph dates back to January 1973.

“Pink Floyd were a product of their time and became a highly successful psychedelic rock band, whilst working on the artwork I wanted to echo an era steeped in change, psychedelia and liberation. The colours used in the piece reflect those times and the half-tones deliberately echo the sixties; giving a distinctly retro-feel to the piece. The print was technically very challenging due to the number of half-tones used."

(DAVID STUDWELL)

The edition has also been kept deliberately low in order to create a more special and desirable piece of work for buyers and collectors.

    DAVID STUDWELL

    David Studwell is a contemporary British artist and print maker who studied at Central St Martins School of Art. Having worked as an artist for over 20 years, Studwell harnesses the spirit of the sixties and seventies, the cult of celebrity and the legacy of Warhol to produce iconic screen prints.

    His works explore the darker side of fame, nostalgia and Americana - police mug shots of well known stars show them at their most vulnerable, or at their most defiant. Private moments of icons at screen tests or during reflection become graphically public, produced in bold and vivid colours. 

    Studwell’s work also tracks the legacy of photography, technology and photographers in the 20th century. He has worked with famous photographer Terry O’Neill and Sir Elton John to create ‘Elton John: Home Run-Dodger Stadium 1975,’ a six colour screen print. The print is a re-working of Terry’s iconic photograph, capturing Elton at the height of his fame in 1975. Studwell also uses the advancement in technology to his advantage to add more sophistication and dynamic layers to his work. “It’s the technology that enables me to bring those images from the bygone eras into the present.”

    His work has been collected by major celebrities including Kate Moss, Sheryl Crow and Nile Rogers. Studwell has also exhibited at numerous galleries in London as well as the USA and his work has featured in numerous magazines including GQ, Elle and World of Interiors.
