ABOUT THE ART
British artist and social media sensation, Arron Crascall, is known for abstract artworks of cultural icons surrounded by clouds of colour and text.
In this piece, Crascall depicts Marilyn Monroe in her iconic windswept pose, sporting a box fresh pair of Air Max Nikes.
This giclée print comes signed and numbered by the artist.
When he’s not creating ridiculous videos that make the whole world laugh, Crascall is working away, creating abstract artworks, inspired by pop culture icons. It was while working as a bookie, that Crascall first started out making Vine and Snapchat videos and sharing them. He amassed followers fast, but it wasn’t until he started including public reactions in his videos that his clips started going viral.
Now, Arron has over 9 million followers on Facebook, 4.4 million on Instagram, and his videos on YouTube have been watched many millions of times.
Each artwork begins life with colours in mind, gradually building up layer after layer, starting with an acrylic base, followed by spray paint, then oil paint, then back to spray paint for the final flourishes...
“It’s chaos. I don’t paint often, but when I do, a lot comes out of me.”
