‘Spiderman’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Dirty Hans. From a limited edition 26 of 195, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
‘Spiderman’ depicts the iconic Marvel character, his head and torso visible in superhero attire. Dirty Hans has compiled the print from fragments of comic strip, allowing the figure to stand out from the graphic background with a dextrous play of light and shade. As high budget superhero films swamp the movie market, Dirty Hans’s print is a brilliant celebration of the character’s original pulp roots.
Contemporary artist Dirty Hans cites Toulouse-Lautrec and Lichtenstein amongst his greatest influences: an unlikely pairing of art greats, the result is Dirty Hans’s own unique and striking aesthetic, by turns gritty and poppy, in artful measures. His work riffs off 1950s pop culture, from music to movies to magazines, updating Pop Art styles with an innovative combination of acrylic and spray-paint on canvas, merged with digital techniques.
