Bashful is a limited edition print by Simon Dry. Limited edition print of the original ‘Bashful’ Pink Shrimp Sweet image by Simon Dry. The first print onto Fabriano paper is over painted in white by Simon and then over printed again to create a uniquely textured hand finished surface. Each print becomes a richly coloured and individual piece of art in a limited edition of 50, signed and numbered by the artist.
Simon Dry trained as a graphic designer, graduating with a BA (Hons) from Ravensbourne College of Art & Design. He has run Drydesign in London, Dublin and Suffolk, using skills learned in this time to create SweetArt along with his wife, Vic. Artist Simon Dry has created highly original art of much loved sweets, made solely from discarded Quality Street wrappers. These iconic artworks feature Dolly Mixture, Fab ice lolly, Flying Saucers, Jelly Babies, Jelly Beans, Love Hearts, Liquorice Allsorts, Pink Shrimp, Quality Street chocolates (Green Triangle, Purple One, Toffee Finger, Toffee Penny and Strawberry Cream), Rocket ice lolly and Wine Gums, with new images being added regularly. His art is all about a love of love, art, sweets, nostalgia and making people smile. It is also Simon’s own small contribution to reducing the amount of single use plastic going to landfill and polluting our environment.
