Work Hard & Be Humble - A2 Silkscreen Art Print
There's something familiar and soothing about taking a walk somewhere lush and green and seeing the humble bee going about its work. The UK honey bee is a great little ambassador for our often brief summer here in the UK.
Unfortunately, our bees are in decline. When I decided to use the bee as the focus for this print I also began to think about how the qualities of the bee are also in decline. That provided the slogan 'Work Hard & Be Humble' - though it's easy to dismiss little sayings like this as old fashioned, I think there's real value and importance to them, just like the little bee.
The artwork is inspired by the packaging design of Victorian tins and boxes and overall was a very satisfying piece to put together.
'Work Hard & Be Humble' is a 3 colour screenprint, hand printed with water based inks on 260gsm, acid free, recycled Context paper. It has a very pleasing natural colour and fiber to it.
Paper size: 59 x 41cm (approx A2)
