New Painted Prints

The Mister Melty “Icon” composition is distillation of the most representative character from my work. The 10” vinyl figure that first came out last year was designed to be an iconic figure and this print follows that same sentiment. Formally, cropping the face and adding the bold rectangle is an homage to Shepard Fairey. He and his work have inspired me for many years (maybe my whole career?). In the case with this print, by focusing on the face, the focus is on the singular optimism that the character represents. And the bold rectangle acts as both a frame and bold reinforcement of the flatness of the graphic. I love this design, and plan to use it for other prints and paintings in the future.

Like the ones before, these are old sold out prints or test prints which have been cut down to 9 x 12” ( 22.9 x 30.5 cm) and then splattered with spray paint, and silkscreened by me in the studio. These ones have a lot more work than the previous ones; a fill color was stenciled in and we used an extra silkscreen color (in place of the halftone dots). There’s so much variety in the various pieces; I’m really happy with how they turned out!

These are signed and dated on the back, and numbered in an edition of 50 (the smallest edition in the series of these prints). 

 

Get yours on Friday July 14 at 11am NYC time on StayMelty.com

Thank you for your continued support, and I hope you enjoy this unique edition as much as I do!
