PLAY SERIES – MOBIL
A print by the French illustrator and artist Philippe Grimaud. The Play Series is all about pop. Philippe created this series with two ideas in mind. He wants to make the celebrities, artists, professionals, brands more accessible. But also kick a little against the establishment. Play a little, so to speak. This print is about oil and one of the biggest companies in the industry, ExxonMobil. There are two things that jump to mind straight away. First, the “empty head”, which is in contrast compared to other prints from this series. Second, this toy is laughing. Laughing so hard that he’s crying.
Philippe Grimaud created this pigment ink print using digital media and printed it on 190 gsm ‘William Turner’ paper. It’s a limited edition, limited to 30.
