‘WhistleJacket 2015’ is a gorgeous Giclee print from the highly sought after Nick Smith. This piece is printed on 300gsm Somerset Satin paper with gloss varnish on colour blocks and from a Limited Edition of 50.
‘WhistleJacket’ is based on possibly the most famous racehorse ever painted and currently hangs prominently in The National Gallery, London. George Stubbs painted ‘Whistlejacket’ three centuries ago with a simple on colour block background – Nick Smith transforms this image using 1450 individual colour blocks each of which are named after a different race horse giving a voyeuristic view onto Stubb’s oil paint pallet back in 1762. This piece is signed, numbered and embossed by the artist and with previous works from Smith selling out incredibly fast we can’t imagine this striking piece will be around for long.

About the Artist
Nick Smith’s work brings the old together with the new, by creating striking limited edition art prints of iconic artworks, simply using the humble Colour Chip swatch. Using colour theory, Smith is highlighting both the complexities and subtleties of the tones in these classic art prints.
By juxtaposing classic art with modern digitalisation, Nick Smith is making a commentary on the unforgiving culture of the modern digital world, whilst making the historic work relevant and accessible today, with his stylised pop art practice.
