Dreams Can Come True

Popeye and Olive Oyl are the latest two prints from a group of ten works specifically imagined by David for the medium of print creating extremely unique editions.

Throughout his career, David always worked on smaller more accessible paintings as a way to move through ideas quickly and at this point in his life, he felt the urgency to create while he still could.

David understood printmaking was a great way to spread his ‘magic’ to a wider audience than a single painting.

He created original artworks specifically for prints, painting from scratch individual works specifically for printmaking. He spent his last working days surrounded by his favourite cartoon family, and including his most important, heartfelt mantras and song lyrics: “Stay forever young” and ”I love you”…

David liked the idea of making family groups and conversations between the characters. This set of his editions (in this format) allowed him to realise this overall vision. The dimensions of this series of works mean that they can be grouped together as an installation of images in many various combinations a way he’d always like to see his work displayed.

Published posthumously each print is signed by his Moira and son Xavier and comes with a full certificate of authenticity.

What is a limited edition?

So you’ve found your perfect limited edition artwork, but what does this actually mean? Limited editions are original artworks that an artist creates in a particular print medium, such as a giclée print, screen print or photograph. Our limited edition artworks are specifically created by our talented artists with a maximum edition number in mind. The term ‘limited edition’ refers to the total number of artworks that are available for that particular piece. The edition size can vary widely between artworks, however most of the time our artists create editions in small numbers ranging from 10 to a few hundred.
