Hand finished 4 Colour Screenprint
Signed and numbered edition of 100 on 300gsm smooth Canaletto Paper
Sweet Toof’s work – which is instantly recognizable for its subjects’ trademark over-sized teeth set in swollen gums – is heavily influenced by the Vanitas paintings of sixteenth century Europe, Mexico’s Day of the Dead, Subway Art and the underground comics ofVaughn Bodé. While there is a good deal of visual humor in his work, Sweet Toof takes on darker subjects such as free speech (and lack thereof), colonialism, political revolution and death; but his paintings are provocative enough to be open to a wide range of interpretations.
A cunning and unique take on a classic circular portrait, complete with the traditional ruffles around the neck, this print is a delight! The menacing skull with the unique Sweet Toof set of teeth becomes funny, but remains intelligent and reaffirms this artist as conceptual. The simplicity of palette adds to the wit and joviality of this print.
Sweet Toof’s artwork is definitely going to increase in value, so you can both enjoy the aesthetics whilst remaining assured of it’s investment potential.
