Today the fifth of August 2017 is 55 years since Marilyn died – this print has a limited edition of 55 and goes on sale today
Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress and model. Famous for playing comic “dumb blonde” characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and was emblematic of the era’s attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected death in 1962. She continues to be considered a major popular culture icon.
This image developed from a big painting 8 x 10 meters – that was over the entrance to Sunbridgewells bradford and incorporated Andy Warhols famous pop art Marilyn with a giant octopus inspired by Spectre – the idea of an artist lair – this print takes us into the underworld of myth .
these prints are all hand pulled silk screen prints with spray paint so each one has its own individual eccentricities that are intrinsic to this process .
