Audrey Hepburn is one of the biggest icons of the 20th Century and an ever-lasting star from Hollywood’s Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest actress in cinema history and is now back at artrepublic in this fantastic new print from the ever-elusive artist HYBRID.
The new print is an exquisite Giclee and silkscreen with deckled edges, which continues in the style of HYBRID’s last two offerings ‘Beautiful Marilyn’ and ‘Jacqueline Kennedy’. ‘Audrey Hepburn’ also features a striking high gloss varnish, which has been silkscreen to add real depth and a fittingly glamorous sheen to the work. All three of prints examine and celebrate women who had incredible power and influence, presenting their portraits on top of a collaged background of newspaper clippings, notes, hand written letters and postcards. The addition of these printed pieces of ephemera provides great texture for the prints, with the application of colourful butterflies balancing the strong graphic typography.
HYBRID is a unique artist, as they do not wish to disclose their identity because they want their work to be viewed without any preconceived ideas or judgements. By remaining anonymous HYBRID allows the work to be viewed entirely separate from them as person also allowing the artist to create work in any style or visual language they choose. HYBRID’s work is always very popular in our gallery so don’t hesitate if you are as captivated by this Audrey Hepburn as we are!
