A signed, limited edition silkscreen on canvas by contemporary figurative artist Simon Claridge.
In his latest collection of limited edition diamond dust silkscreen prints, Simon Claridge has taken iconic images from the hallowed archives of legendary English photographer Terry O’Neill.
“I photographed Muhammad Ali maybe four or five times throughout my career, but he never remembered me. I could sit in a hotel room watching him train for three hours, and he wouldn’t say a single word to me. The last time I shot him, I decided I wanted to write an article about him as well, because he fascinated me. When I turned up on the second day, he shouted at me. His brother had to tell him I was one of the good guys, but then Ali was always suspicious of everyone.” – Terry O’Neill
Claridge’s silkscreen renderings with diamond dust have been executed thoughtfully, to retain the essence of the original exposures and showcase the style of both artists. Simon has applied diamond dust to give this work an incredible glitter effect, building layer upon layer of colour and shade. Due to the delicacy of this artwork, we recommend collection from your local gallery.
