This limited-edition screen print depicts Endless’ “Lizzy Vuitton” portrait, which was first showcased on the streets of Shoreditch and Soho before making its way onto canvas and paper. Having always regarded the Queen as “the ultimate fashion icon”, this recent iteration of artwork celebrates her Majesty’s reign with a modern twist. She has been adorned with a branded print, symbolising the summit of luxury, power and wealth. In contrast, the Queen is seen to be making a humorous tongue-poke gesture, a nod to the British punk movement which Endless is also known for bringing to life across other artworks. The background consists of dissected elements of the Union Jack flag, with vivid colours, sharp angles, paint drips and with his iconic writing incorporated throughout. This edition has been created at Jealous Print Studio in London, on a hand-pulled screen print bed, with 10 layers of colour manually applied. Each unique print has then been hand-finished with spray paint, numbered and signed by the artist.
Endless, an Aritst we have loved and worked with since we first entered the Art market, is a London-based contemporary street artist, whose artworks tell a visual story and observation of the world he sees around him. Starting out using the walls of our nation’s capital as his canvas, a bold street-art aesthetic is still prevalent throughout his works – infused with a mix of contemporary techniques. His work often comments on society’s reaction to the media, the influence of the advertising industry and the shift in modern priorities from religious worship, to the ‘new era’ religion, where the shops are our chapels, the magazines our bibles and the fashion icons are our gods. His career exploded in 2016 when he was asked to work with the legendary Gilbert and George and was followed by historic collaborations with brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Fiorucci (FI-O-RU-CHY) and Liberty London.
Endless’ legacy will always boast that he was the first street artist to have his work feature in the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery one of the many reasons why his work is collected by some of the most wealthy and famous individuals of our generation.
