Hands up those of you who’ve never clipped clothes drying pegs to their ears, grabbed a nearby stick and shuffled around on their knees imagining themselves to be Yoda?! Surely it’s a rite of passage activity for any kid who grew up in the late 1970s or early 1980s? Or maybe it’s just us then. Well, it can’t JUST be us as one of the UK’s most prominent and habitually well-received contemporary figurative artists, Craig Davison – himself clearly a product of this aforementioned time – has just released his brand new Autumn 2014 collection, with this very latest piece found in the midst of it.
Entitled, ‘Yoda Am I’, this nostalgia-tinged, artist-signed giclee on canvas iteration is trademark Davison, as he continues to get into the minds of kids of a certain bygone generation, as they themselves take on the persona of an iconic character from their own lived youth back then. If you get our retrospective drift. Limited to a mere 195 editions from launch, this stunning new Davison illustrative study is predicted to sell fast.
