Skull of a Skeleton with Berning Cigarette

This artwork is part of a series created by Brighton-based artist, Richard Berner, inspired by the works of the Old Masters. This piece is the artist’s interpretation of one of his all-time favourite paintings, Skull of a Skeleton with Burning Cigarette by Vincent Van Gogh.

This is another of Berner’s works to be crafted entirely from a meticulously-hand-drawn cast of little figures, that he calls ‘Champs.’ It is a wonderful example of Berner’s talent for creating intricate pieces that sing with unexpected details.

This giclée print with hand-torn edges is from a limited edition of 50, signed by the artist.

    About the artist
    +

    Brighton-based artist, Richard Berner is an internationally collected illustrator and painter best known for his detailed pieces where a larger image is created from hundreds of signature hand-drawn figures or ‘champs’.

    After studying Fine Art and Animation Berner has gone on to create a range of artworks from children's book illustrations, to limited edition screen prints, surreal portraits on canvas to large-scale wall murals. All in a variety of media from ink on paper to acrylics on wood and glass.

    Drawing inspiration from a colourful array of cultural iconography – from Star Wars to Disney, British landmarks to cult celebrity – Berner creates works which bristle with imagination and eccentricity.

    With his intricate, ink drawings as a base, Berner brings each work to life with the addition of hand-applied colour and texture, building up layers of paint drips and splatters, for a dynamic and unique aesthetic.

    He describes the scenes in his artwork as ‘surreal architecture’ and cites the masters, Dali and MC Escher as his biggest inspirations. It is easy to see this influence in the dream-like scenes he creates which often depict a dystopian view of his hometown of Brighton.
