About

An original signed acrylic on canvas by American artist Jack Graves (1988-) titled "Audrey Hepburn Icon II", 2017. Hand signed, titled, and dated by Graves on verso. This painting was hand stretched on the stretcher bars by Graves. Part of Graves' latest "Icon" series. Canvas size: 36" x 36". Mint condition. Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress, model, dancer and humanitarian. Recognized as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood's Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third-greatest female screen legend in Golden Age Hollywood and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. Born in Ixelles, a district of Brussels, Hepburn spent her childhood between Belgium, England and the Netherlands. In Amsterdam, she studied ballet with Sonia Gaskell before moving to London in 1948, continuing her ballet training with Marie Rambert, and then performing as a chorus girl in West End musical theatre productions. Jack Graves is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. From and early age Jack has developed a talent for creating unique and original works of art. Winning departmental awards during his early primary education, and while studying at home and abroad at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and at Newcastle University in England. Over the past several years Jack has been painting professionally, developing a wide audience and base of collectors worldwide. In 2014 he was recognized by the critical review, “Internationale KUNST HEUTTE”. Today his paintings are featured in numerous galleries, on “1st dibs” and “The Highboy”, two international digital fine art platforms, as well as his own website. Jack describes his art style as “Eclecticism”, “a work that juxtaposes two or more different art styles, one from the past and new ones I develop for the future.” This approach has evolved, culminating in a completely new series of paintings he calls the “Icon Series”. In this series he incorporates an idealized, almost photo-realistic face of an international super-star model or celebrity, an “Icon”, within a matrix of an otherwise totally abstract expressionist composition, which makes the iconic image dazzle. The new “Icon Series” has been met with tremendous success with designers, galleries and fine art collectors from Hong Kong to Manhattan, selling over 40 works in a matter of months of its debut.
