A limited edition 3 colour lino print collage this is one of Saskia's classic car series of lino prints. The Union Jack backdrop and lettering are printed using the jigsaw method whereby the lino is cut after carving into pieces which are inked separately and reassembled for printing. The car is a separate lino print which is collaged on once the prints are dry.
Mini Amore was originally commissioned as a birthday gift with a bespoke number plate for the owner of a classic Mini Cooper. "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" is probably the most famous line from Peter Collinson's 1969 film The Italian Job starring Michael Caine.
"Cars have a sensual shape and classic cars are full of character, steeped in nostalgia and each one represents some unique aspect of British lifestyle and culture."
Mini Amore comes mounted in a white card bevelled edge mount.
