Khaldoun Hijazin’s Portrait of Shoeman is a screen printed translation of his oil painting of the same name. In his work, Khaldoun explores the evolution of power and control dynamics and their effect on issues of class and cultural politics. We were drawn to his series of paintings featuring people of different social classes with shoes (or shoe brushes) for heads, and were so pleased to be able to collaborate with Khaldoun to produce this screen print. We think it would look great in an executive office, a cozy den or…just about anywhere!
This print was created by layering halftones of white, brown, red and black to capture all the intricacies of Khaldoun’s striking oil painting. The glossy red of the tie evokes a fine satin, and black lines add graphic definition to Shoeman’s crisp suit. This print, on 18×24″ 100 lb Madero Beach French Paper, is stamped with our studio chop and signed by the artist. It is accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity.
Edition of 20.
