About

An original signed acrylic on canvas painting by American artist Jack Graves (1988-) titled "Marilyn Monroe Icon III", 2018. Hand signed, titled, and dated by Graves on verso. The canvas was hand built and stretched onto the stretcher bars by Graves. Part of Graves' 2018 "Icon" series. Canvas size: 36" x 36". Mint condition. Marilyn Monroe was an American actress and model. Famous for playing comic "dumb blonde" characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s, emblematic of the era's attitudes towards sexuality. 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 “1stdibs” and “Artsy”, 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 in 2017.
