For The Love Of Pop - Lilac, 2018 by Antony 'H' Haylock

For the Love of Pop - Lilac is a Screenprint onto a stretched canvas by iconic artist Anthony 'H' Haylock. From a limited edition of 5, the print is signed and numbered by the artist and is ready to hang, or it can be tray framed.

'For the Love of Pop' featured in 'H's solo exhibition, Pop Goes the Easel, which staged a collision between two of the twentieth century's most game-changing visual artists: Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst. Here, Hirst's iconic, diamond-encrusted human skull (aptly named, For the Love of God) sports the wild and wayward, ice-blonde crop of Warhol's memorable, 1986 self portrait. Tracing the lineage of postmodernism - from the undisputed king of the Pop Art movement, to the high priest of the 1990s YBAs - 'H' blazes the trail for an art of intelligent irony in our contemporary moment.

For the Love of Pop is a Hand Pulled Screenprint on fine Italian canvas, stretched over a deep high quality Tulipwood stretcher. This piece is in a series of 6 colours with an edition of 5 by iconic artist Antony 'H' Haylock.

From the Artist

Having made the photographic image, I wanted to explore the Warhol side of the idea. So I created this body of screenprints reflecting his own Self Portrait series. These replicate the colours Warhol used in his series of 6.

About The Artist - Antony 'H' Haylock

Antony lives and works in Southend-on-Sea, UK, and works in various media including oil paint, acrylic, and eco-solvent based products. 

Of his methods, he has said, “Once I have an idea, the medium is secondary, I just set to work with what suits the end result I’m after.” Inspired by iconic objects, we love the way each artwork is a true conversation between the paint and canvas, paired together to create lifelike artworks that are often surprising and humorous. 

Antony studied graphics at college and went on to partner with Pez before becoming a prominent artist of the 1980s rave scene. He was later commissioned for murals and large-scale paintings before working in the television world at BBC and Pinewood Studios. He worked for various clients including Sony, LG, Phllips, Panasonic, and Pimms. Additionally, he has exhibited in shows across the UK. On the question of why he makes art, Antony states: “I have always had a fascination for the iconic object. Something that has the power to evoke an emotion, a memory, a visual time stamp, things that compel us to covet them.”

We’ve been working with Antony since 2016.
