Contemporary artist Minty is known for his wheat paste-ups, which have enlivened the streets of Brighton with their bold and brave aesthetic. Instantly recognisable, Minty's colourful work integrates cultural symbolism with absurdism and eroticism, often branded with the three, simple words, 'I Love You', and his own, stencilled sign-off. 'Untitled Edition Four' is Minty's homage to the Pop Art giant Roy Lichtenstein. The portrait of a 1950s, comic strip woman dominates the print, her blonde hair falling around her anxious face. Ben Day dots are spaced across her visage in the same soft pink as her long nails, while blue tears drip from her blue eyes, which match the colour of her lips. A streak of pigment dashes across the print in the same pink and blue tones for a bold counterpoint and a fantastically harmonious colour-clash, capturing all of the raw and dynamic energy of street art in a limited edition print.
