NEW STATION 4 UK ART PRINT by Winston Smith "Mona Mohawk"

She is older than the stones among which she rests. Her smooth, plucked eyebrows and peculiar fashion of the day create a serene and penetrating gaze. Her timeless, subtitle smile beguiles us. Her calm grace, inner light and singularly unique charms entrap and disarm us.

Hers is the face that sunk a thousand ships. She is the quintessential marriage of classical beauty and devil-may-give-a-rat’s ass attitude. With the shock of hair, cut as the fearsome American tribal warriors wore it and a spiky neck collar ringing her throat, as well as a jagged little safety pin piercing her soft flesh, Mona Mohawk's expression of surly disdain is as effective as a snub-nose 45, for all its lethal intent.

This very special and very limited edition of 13 hand-pulled prints available exclusively from Station 4, featuring wildly inspired color effects is the newest and perhaps the most audacious version of Mona Mohawk yet. We’re hoping the spirit of Leonardo is benevolently gazing down on our humble efforts and giving us his blessing in this artistically sincere rendering of his timeless masterpiece.
