Shepard Fairey – Diamond Dust limited prints

This new series of prints are Shepard Fairey’s first use of diamond dust printing. The series is comprised of 4 stunning prints of floral ornament abstraction utilizing white and black diamond dust. The new medium, diamond dust, adhered to the surface of the screen prints is a shimmering and elegant material. Perhaps most famously used by Andy Warhol, who understood perfectly how to convey a message, Diamond Dust was used to add glamour, transforming ordinary images into coveted objects .  The material aligns with Shepard’s work and interest in the seduction of advertising and consumerism. Diamond Dust, literally and metaphorically is superficial, applied to the surface of the print, the luminous effect is both beautiful and alluring.

This series is ONLY available via Paul Stopler Gallery
