We are delighted to present the debut Studio Edition collection by Hue Folk :
Heavily influenced by the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, Hue Folk fuses street art and pop art to create a style that is uniquely rooted in a previous era.
Reinventing borrowed elements and giving them a fresh new contemporary edge, ensures that his work is both relevant and a visual comment on the diversity of contemporary society.
Using well-known “celebrities” of the 20th and 21st century as the central theme, Hue Folk draws our attention to the most significant figures of our times. In this duo of Her Royal Highness, The Queen, he uses bold colours, street art motifs and luxury fashion brand emblems to bring his chosen subject to life in an explosion of colour.
Using innovative techniques and a unique perspective, Hue Folk brings the conventional idea of a well-known icon into the present day, reborn and reinvigorated. A wonderful example of how art can offer new and exciting perspectives on the banal and established.
Her Majesty by Hue Folk is available as an exclusive edition of 45 copies. Each print is uniquely hand-embellished using a variety of mixed media and signed by the artist. These faithful representations combine the skill of the UK’s finest printmakers with the creative hand of the artist to capture the very essence of the original painting and offer a unique element to every single collectable edition.
Hue Folk is a collective of diverse young artists brought together through their fascination with vibrant colour, typography, graphic design, folk and urban art. As creatives from varied disciplines, they bring together the vision of illustrators, graphic designers and digital artists.
The debut collection from Hue Folk was heavily influenced by traditional lettering techniques v’s 21st-century social media commentary, resulting in an assortment of vivid 3D typography based works. This playful approach to our modern obsession with social media rehashes the old with a contemporary twist, whilst paying homage to the traditional craft of hand lettering.
Their latest offering ‘Opulence’ gives us a collection of 60’s icons with a unique cool vibe. With each character surrounded by associated brands, to which many of us aspire to behold. Each piece is totally unique with selected areas resined for added depth and texture.
The collaboration of these individual artists results in a mash-up of printmaking, laser cutting and stencilling, to name just a few of the techniques they are reinventing. The eclectic materials used only further the diversity of this collection, with the addition of laser engraved wood, spray paint, ink and gold leaf.All Artists
