March is a limited edition silkscreen print by Harry Bunce. This work is part of The Happy Year Series, the animals brandish survival equipment, as seen here with the rabbit holding a pen knife. These details are evocative of Harry’s keen interest in animal conservation – a theme that runs through all of his works.
Harry Bunce was born and raised in a small Hampshire village, his family were builders. Following a short and volatile spell at art school he moved west to the city of Bristol. Working in the fashion industry by day he continued to draw and paint by night. Over the years Harry’s work slowly began inhabiting metropolitan walls, galleries and homes. A chance collaboration with screen printing gurus, Screen One, who also worked with Banksy and Nick Walker, introduced a more graphic element to his style, sharpening it’s unique, slightly unnerving edge. His work can possibly best be described as ‘Folk Art’ but defies easy categorisation. He often raises envoironmental concerns and is a fierce defender of the countryside. Cute? Maybe, but seldom completely cuddly. Bunce now lives in rural Somerset, his work is shown throughout Britain and recently made its debut in New York.
