  • Our Ethos

    Duality is in our DNA — our founders self-describe as polar opposites — but our vision for championing accessibility, diversity, and equality in the art world is a shared one. It informs everything we do, from the prints we sell to the stories we tell. Art is for everyone and there is no one way to be a collector.

  • Sustainability

    Although we’re not perfect, we do pride ourselves on our packaging. We use as little as possible and have worked hard to find the most environmentally-friendly packaging on the market.

    Our poster tubes and print boxes are eco-friendly, made from recycled content and fully recyclable. On occasion, to improve our carbon footprint, our prints will be shipped direct from our printers in co-branded packaging.

“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.

I LOOKED AT A GIVENCHY ADVERTISEMENT AND AN ANGEL EMERGED

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.“

PACKAGING & SHIPPING


Artworks from this edition will be carefully packaged in Darklight Art’s London studio, wrapped in acid-free archival tissue paper and couriered flat in protective packaging.

Framed orders will be posted direct from our framers in Vauxhall, London.

We kindly ask that you not break the circle and recycle all our packaging once you are finished with it 🥀
