Brigitte by Steve Hamilton – unframed

Born and raised in Paris, Bardot was an aspiring ballerina in her early life. She started her acting career in 1952. She achieved international recognition in 1957 for her role in And God Created Women (1956), and also caught the attention of French intellectuals. She was the subject of Simone deBeauvoir’s 1959 essay The Lolita Syndrome, which described her as a “locomotive of women’s history” and built upon existentialist  themes to declare her the first and most liberated woman of post-war France.

This work is a seven (7) layer stencil piece – hand cut and sprayed using quality graffiti spray paint.  A street based style to a glamour icon.

Size:  42cm x 59cm (work only)

The stencil is sprayed directly onto a pre-prepared coloured mount board (thick board).  Total preparation and spray time is over 15 hours.

This work is not a print.  It is an original piece. Prints are not made from any stencil produced by me.  They are “as sprayed”.  Each is individual and original in its own right.  The images show some of the process undertaken as well as an indicative wall-photo.

Being a stencil based piece, it retains the characteristics of street stencil work – spray marks, natural bubbles and the deliberately imperfect approach with stencils highlights its intent on celebrating the subject but also being real.  Being human is a hallmark of these works, with often less-seen images utilised in the works.
