Mona Lisa Remixed

September 20, 2011

Leonardo da Vinci’s classic distilled, reduced & remixed down into 140 exact circular characters of colour. A work about the illusion of familiarity, inspired by Seurat & sitting too close to the TV. Makes little sense close up. Makes every sense from the other side of the room.  I got mine… I think this is so cool.  Reminiscent of Damien Hirst’s work – see below – the concept of taking a well know masterpiece and reworking it into a contemporary piece is great I think and for 44 pounds ($70.00) this piece will look amazing in my bedroom against the chocolate-brown grass cloth wallpaper walls.  Available from www.someprints.com it is being labeled as the Mona Lisa for the Twitter generation.  A stunning & vividly coloured Giclee print (unframed). Professional high quality 600pdi print on 190gsm matt white paper. Signed & dated on the back in pencil. Rolled up, wrapped in tissue & posted in a sturdy cardboard tube… and free shipping!

Artist: Damien Hirst
