    About The Work

    Cory Arcangel produced this print (a limited edition of 50) to coincide with the Institute of Contemporary Arts’s exhibition of works by Richard Hamilton, the British artist known as the “Father of Pop Art” (Hamilton's wartime training in technical engineering, and his fascination with Modernist design principles, inspired what are now considered some of the movement's foundational works). Following Hamilton’s ethos, Arcangel produced the print using a plotter, a type of digital printer that was once used primarily for computer-aided design—it's now been largely replaced by wide-format ink printers—and Arcangel then hand-colored the print. The subject, a biker riding a Ducati motorcycle, the apex of high-end Italian design, is a fitting corollary to Hamilton’s fascination with the allure of the speed, efficiency, and glamour of modern technology. It also directly references the elder artist’s 1955 installation Man, Machine, and Motion.
