An exhibition of paintings and screenprints. The latest mashup of Muses, Murals and Music from London-based graphic artist and printmakerCarl Stimpson.

About

Carl Stimpson blends carefully painted portraits of icons from the worlds of music
and film with cartoon techniques and imagery, and classic but obscure advertising
logos. So far, so pop-art, but where his work diverges is in his treatment of this classic
material - his use of the ‘ligne-claire’ technique, the imposition and projection of his
mashups onto suburban and urban walls as fictional murals, a slight twist in some
of the lovingly painted portraits.

Having trained initially as a painter - he studied Fine Art at The Arts Institute of
Bournemouth (now Arts University College Bournemouth) - the recent addition of
screenprinting to his painting techniques has allowed Stimpson to introduce an element
of mass-production to his work, producing beautifully varied editions where the
flatness of a screenprinted black ink layer contrasts with softer hand-painted elements.
