DescriptionOn Top of the World Mickey Mouse and Pluto Serigraph by David Willardson (Walt Disney, c. 2000s).
This is a fantastic piece featuring Mickey Mouse and Pluto titled On Top of the World. The painting is by David Willardson. David Willardson is the creative force of the "Pep Art Movement," an innovative new genre where cultural icons are rendered with an unprecedented infusion of color, personality, and energy. Unlike traditional "pop art" however, the subjects of Willardson's "pep" imagery are not soup cans; they are classic Disney characters. "They were my childhood heroes" Willardson remembers. "I never lost that." On Top of the World was reproduced as a serigraph in an edition of 250. This piece is hand-numbered 210/250 and signed by the artist who was heavily involved in the printing process; approving every screen and color before it was laid down. Serigraphy is the oldest forms of printing. Its origins can be traced to the prints, woodcuts and block prints of the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279 AD), and later to Japanese artists in the 15th century. The piece has hand-deckled edges and measures 18" x 24". On Top of the World would be a terrific acquisition and addition to any fine art or animation art collection. Fine condition.
