Each of these limited editions is a hand-pulled serigraph on canvas that is hand signed and individually numbered by Tennessee Loveless. Artist Tennessee Loveless takes Mickey Mouse to a whole new dimension with a new series of limited edition serigraphs inspired by the 8-bit graphics of popular video games of the 1980s. Whether it’s the nostalgia for that simpler era in video gaming or the everlasting nostalgia for Mickey himself, these explorations in color and pattern are what this up and coming American artist has come to be known for. To achieve the powerful pop of color that these pieces require, these limited editions have been produced as serigraphs, created by silk-screening the colors one by one onto the canvas, eight passes in total, building up these iconic images one layer/color at a time. The final result is a crisp, colorful, and precisely beautiful rendering of this exciting artist’s inspired interpretations of the world’s most playful mouse!
Tennessee Loveless, born in Greenville, SC, is a contemporary pop artist whose bold use of color and pattern evokes an immediate visual impact to the viewer, but also creates a poetic irony when one considers the fact that Loveless is severely colorblind. Despite many obstacles throughout his life and career he has persevered in pursuing his career as an artist. He is driven by his passion for painting people and iconic fictional characters in a way that strikes an emotional and nostalgic connection through the power of the one thing he is blind to.
