“Eyes Wide Shut”,
Ballpoint pen, crayon, spray paint on card,
42x32cm (unframed), 2016, SOLD.
I created this drawing (based on a photo taken by Chris Levine, and inspired by a stencil by Incwel) for a group exhibition celebrating The Queen’s 90th birthday. It also pays homage to the year’s passing of British pop legend David Bowie.
The original is sold but limited edition prints are available to order here.
It went into a group exhibition called “Queen Themed” curated by Ben Moore from Art Below. Right is a photo of the article about the show the Evening Standard newspaper did. It mentions this artwork: “James Mylne’s Eyes Wide Shut, which shows her complete with the lightning flash across her face that Bowie sported on the front of his Aladdin Sane album…“.
Also below is a video that aired on London Live about the show.
It exhibited alongside artworks done by other artists including Gavin Turk, Mr.Brainwash, Goldie MBE, Carne Griffiths, Keith Haynes, Trust Icon, Scarlett Raven, Ernesto Romano, James Vaulkhard, Nettie Wakefield, Nasser Azam, Francis Akpala, Richard Colson, Luciana Giobellina.
