Kevin’s Girl – the final edition of 20

Kevin’s Girl – the final edition of 20

Neo-pop is a post-modern art movement that developed during a revival of interest in Pop art in the 1980’s. This movement, also known as ‘Shock Pop Art’, was not a new style as such, but rather a resurgence of artwork based on popular culture. Characteristics include bright, pure colour and clean defined lines, often depicting a cartoon-like subject. Or, as Richard likes to describe his own personal style of Neo-pop art, it’s ‘Naive meets Pop’!

The painting above, titled “My Girl 1/20” and 100cm X 200cm in size, is based on the original and bigger “Kevin’s Girl” (150cm X 300cm) that was painted in 2004. It is one of a final series of 20 paintings in this size featuring the iconic Kevin’s Girl image.
“It’s time to put her to bed in the original form of painting. After this, she will only be available in limited edition print form” said Richard.

In his 2005 book “Richard Scott” he describes the work in the following words:
“I was sitting at Charl’s place one day and spotted this record cover on his couch. It was a photo taken by photographer Kevin Gray. Charl told me the story of Kevin while I sat in awe looking through his portfolio. I grabbed my mobile phone, took a picture and painted this piece in my naïve style. It is slowly creeping up my favourites ladder. Perhaps Kevin can introduce me to the model one day. Enough said.”
