Cited as the leader of a contemporary Californian psychedelic-pop aesthetic, Los Angeles–based artist and designer Steven Harrington is best known for his bright, iconic style that encourages a two-way conversation between the artist and viewer. There’s a timeless quality to his playful yet contemplative work, which is inspired by California’s mystique, vastly diverse landscape, and thriving mix of cultures. Embracing a multimedia approach, Harrington’s portfolio includes large-scale installations made of plaster and stone, handscreened prints, limited-edition books, skateboards, and sculptures.
The artist is back with a limited edition — hand-pulled screenprint entitled Our House Is On Fire. Measuring 48 by 24 inches tall, the oversized edition was inspired by an original painting of the same name that Harrington first unveiled at the Powerlong Museum in Shanghai, China, earlier this year. The painting measures 16 by 8 feet tall and was presented alongside works that raise awareness of climate change.
The vivid and whimsical work portrays the Los Angeles-based artist’s signature Mello character traversing through a psychedelic landscape filled with burning, humanoid palm trees, and flowers. A total of twelve vibrant colors and black ink are featured in the composition. Each Our House Is On Fire print arrives signed and numbered by the artist alongside a certificate of authenticity. Only 120 prints have been produced for the edition and will never be reproduced. Don’t forget to head over to Steven Harrington’s website if you want one.
