Steve Coulter a United Kingdom based, lifetime art, popular music enthusiast and print maker.
This 45renegade series of digitally enhanced still life photographic images as museum quality fine art Giclée prints came about after displaying vinyl records around the home and noting the photogenic nature of ageing vinyl seven inch singles in their sometimes battered sleeves – but wanting them to be more imposing.
“The grandson of Eric Buxton-Parrott, a renowned post-war fine art printer and serigrapher, Steve has been surrounded by interesting art and prints all of his life. With a modest collection of artwork by contemporary printers and inherited impressionist art pieces, philosophy, influence and inspiration come from the like of mid-century British and American contemporary and pop artists, Frank Stella, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg amongst others.”
The two worlds of art and music collide, digitally enhanced images, maxi sized to the limit of fine art Giclée printers. These colourful prints are all about the possessive scribbles, patina, tears and creases from a life of their own, as much as the punchy colours and signature designs employed by commercial artists of the Sixties and Seventies. Each vinyl record was supplied in its own mass produced paper sleeve of disposable artwork in zeitgeist colours.”
