I’ll be Damned, a limited edition hand finished print from AAWatson, blends traditional and modern styles to create a unique art print perfect for any space.
This print showcases AAWatson’s signature dark humour. His clever use of Typography, using gold leaf lettering to spell out iconic phrases, combined with the more stoic images of the past produces a witty, approachable artwork maintaining curiosity to keep each art with gold leaf print interesting.
This print is a limited edition and one of only 25 by the Scottish Artist, AAWatson. The piece takes inspiration from a self-portrait by George Augustus Baker, c.1874 and uses hand-applied metallic gold leaf to add a shimmering touch of luxury and style.
This artwork is hand finished, firstly Allan created the art print using a Giclée printed background portrait and a screen printed gloss enamel varnish, placing the gold leaf by hand while the varnish is still tacky. This method does create a degree of variation, with Watson deliberately not burnishing out any wrinkles or imperfections to further add to the uniqueness of each print from the edition. Each one is truly unique for you!
