This week is a big week in the art world. The 2019 version of Art Basel is taking place this week, and we’ve got a handful of other exhibitions worth checking out. There is also #NeonDreams taking place locally, which will surely one to out. While we wait for all of that to kick off the American artist, Todd Bienvenu returns with something new. JRP|Editions and the artist have come together to announce the first-ever Lithograph “Beach Towel.”
The lithograph has been produced in collaboration with Galerie Sébastien Bertrand. The image arrives as a simple, though colorful display that is sure to transport you to Spring and Summer. The piece features a male figure on the beach covered by a “Beach Towel,” hiding his face while a beautiful bikini-clad woman walks by. The lithograph is unique and interesting, to say the least.
Todd Bienvenu spoke about the piece. He stated: “It’s a painting from a couple of years ago. It’s a beach scene. This man and this woman looking at each other, he’s got the towel wrapped around him.” He continued, adding, “The figures are chunky and solid, there’s a lot of weight to the image. The colors are nice and clear, so I thought it would be a good print, simple and graphic, strong image, bright, happy.”
