Watch a sneak peak of Fin DAC hand-finishing some of the Coney Island Girl prints… In April this year, Fin DAC who is now globally renowned for his sell-out print releases and photorealist free-hand sprayed female portraits on walls across the globe, created a hand-finished print that takes inspiration from Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ song, ‘Coney Island Girl.’ The collaborative project marked Beautiful Crime’s 10th anniversary since we launched, and the Fun Lovin’ Criminals 20th anniversary since their seminal album, ‘Come Find Yourself’ launched. This was Fin DAC’s first UK print release in over 3 years and to make the artworks particularly unique, each print has a hand-painted splash across the eyes and is hand-finished.
The incredibly detailed and skilfully executed original works on metal, canvas and bamboo as well as limited edition prints also feature various emblems the Fun Lovin’ Criminals have used throughout their history as a band – reworked as tattoos on the model’s skin, along with Beautiful Crime’s own dripping heart logo. Many of the metallic prints have now sold out, but Criminal Pink, yellow and red are still available.
All prints have hand-painted splashes across the eyes and the ‘Criminal Pink’ edition is signed by Fin as well as Huey, Fast and Frank from the Fun Lovin’ Criminals.
