This particular piece of "ICARUS", was made specifically for the 2021 LONDON ART BIENNALE, and was winner of the Art Museum of Chianciano Terme Award and City of Art Award. It is a single signed edition.
Seb Xavier's most famous work, and arguably his Magnum Opus so far. "ICARUS" retells the classic tale in a modern context, it is an exploration of human nature and how the artist believes we would react if we came upon such a sight - a statement on the world being in a perennial juncture of beauty and harsh reality.
This is a photograph made to look like a classical painting, inspired by Herbert Draper's Lament for Icarus.
