What is an Icon Artist?
From the early days of pop art, transforming film, sport and music icons into something different has been an obsession with many of the movements leading artists. Dan Pearce takes famous portraits of celebrities as varied as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Amy Winehouse, Madonna, Keith Richards, Churchill, Twiggy, Kate Moss, Lady Gaga, Muhammed Ali and David Bowie to create abstract images that look great on any wall. As an emerging icon artist, his technique uses digital images on brushed aluminium and combines these with vivid splashes of colour and elegant textures to create artworks that have an industrial grace which many collectors are raving about.
The Rise of the Fine Art Icon
The process that produces a stylish fine art icon for Dan Pearce comes from strong influences early on in his career when he was attracted to stencil art, particularly the work of innovative artists such as ELK and C215. Key to the success of Pearce’s images is his ability to combine a tactile component that adds to the visual impact of his works of art. For Pearce, that involves experimenting with a range of different mediums to produce fine art icons that transcend the original digital image. Creating a bold style that immediately attracts the eye has taken a lot of work and experimentation over the years. Combining media such as polished metal and rich resins is only part of the mix that goes into producing these truly memorable fine art icon images.
