American artist George Condo is working with Avant Arte on the release of three highly limited silkscreen prints. The collaboration is made in partnership with the Dia Art Foundation and produced by London’s Make-Ready studio, with full proceeds benefitting Dia’s commitment to supporting solo and group exhibitions, as well as site-specific installations around the world.

The trio of prints, Prismatic Head Composition, Lost in Time, Portrait and Head, are all adaptations of previous canvas paintings. Condo, whose only held two previous jobs before pursuing art full time, draws from his earlier experiences working for the Dia Art Foundation and the silkscreen printing techniques he learned during his time at Andy Warhol‘s Factory, resulting in three highly expressive prints that come as a bargain value ($6,626 USD each) as opposed to the prices that his normal paintings fetch (roughly $2 to 4m USD on average).

Condo has described his fragmented portraiture as a mixture of artificial realism and psychological cubism. In the former, the American artist questions the makeup of reality, which has intensified in discourse with the rise of fake news and artificial intelligence. Condo’s artworks consist of a hodgepodge of varying symbols, motifs, and philosophies — from Hegel to his cover of Ye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010) — commenting on the unseriousness of a culture obsessed with pastiche. Psychological cubism, which expands on Pablo Picasso‘s foundation of flattening a 3D object on a single plane, applies this aesthetic framework in imbuing the varying inner states of the human psyche on the two-dimensional plane of the paper or canvas.

Collectors looking to add one or all of the works will have to enter a draw for each. The prints are limited to an edition of 150, come signed and numbered by the artist, and will release to the public on Wednesday March 20 at 7am PST.
