“I’ve been influenced by this vague, hazy sort of image interpretation. Like looking at a cloud and saying you see a koala. In this instance I looked at a Givenchy advertisement and an angel emerged.”
ABOUT THE EDITION ✖️
This is a very special edition for Darklight Art. Not only is it the first [hopefully of many] original artworks on our store, but it’s also the only physical artwork currently available from the artist, anywhere.
This exclusive small edition is the perfect addition to your art collection, whether you’re a seasoned pro, or just starting out.
Jesse Draxler’s art has been exhibited globally and belongs in many impressive private collections, both IRL as well as NFT. If you’re looking to invest in an artist as well as an incredible piece of art for your space, look no further.
You can read more about the creation of Givenchy Angel in our interview with Jesse.
Givenchy Angel was created in 2022 in Jesse’s L.A. studio. The replicated advertisement was printed in London as a giclée print on matte Hahnemühle Photo Rag. This is our preferred print technique for works which contain rich and heavy blacks, like Jesse’s.
All embellishments were then added by the artist by hand in monochrome acrylic spray paint, using masking techniques to create the distorted vision of an angel.
Each artwork in the edition is totally unique and is numbered and signed by the artist on verso. Artworks will be sent to buyers at random in the order in which they are numbered.
“I took time with each individual piece in the edition, returning to each multiple times, as if each were a unique 1/1, which in essence each is.“
