The work of Steve Smythe is flavoured by his background as a graphic designer. Smythe's prints - which make deft use of mixed-media techniques, collage styles, and material innovation - are distinguished by their bold use of colour and compositional practices, crossing the line from graphics to art in the style of early Warhol or Paolozzi. 'Contemplate Famous - Sky Blue and Blush Pink 1/3' employs bricolage technique to exceptional success. An array of cut-out and torn scraps of image, type, and pattern, are rearranged and layered over the greyscale portrait of a woman, which Smythe has delicately colourised in blush pink. Working sections of inky black, bubblegum, and blush against a sky blue background, Smythe brings image, colour and typography into perfect compositional union, for a for a truly beautiful work of contemporary art. 'Contemplate Famous - Sky Blue and Blush Pink 1/3' is from a limited edition of 3, each one hand finished for a unique print.
