As a time-limited edition, Johnny Depp "Five" was available to purchase for 13 days only, between 3pm (GMT) on the 20th July and midnight (GMT) 1st August – The edition is now closed and the sale for this product has now ended. The number of editions produced was limited by demand during this time.
Hand-signed by Johnny Depp, each artwork was made to order, uniquely numbered, and emboss stamped by hand with Johnny's personal mark of authenticity, The Bunnyman.
This image captures the emotional exhaustion Johnny was feeling when he completed the artwork in 2021, as he was about to enter the fifth year of a very difficult period of his life. He added the “five” tally-mark annotation in recognition of this moment in time.
The original reference for the art is a still from a shoot for Dior’s ‘Sauvage’, directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. Johnny chose this particular image in honour of Dior and the loyalty they’ve always shown him. To Johnny, the image symbolizes the importance of truth and the steadfast support of those who remain close to you during challenging times.
"If the piece resonates with even just one person, this art has purpose." - Johnny Depp.
Traditionally being seen as the form in which many artists have come to be remembered by, self-portraits offer insights not only into the artist’s life, surroundings and artistic ideas but also into their state of mind. When creating a self-portrait, the artist represents his psychological features as well as his emotions, bringing out a feeling that allows the viewer to see the subject’s character. The feeling the art expresses gains a new meaning, acting as a mirror, and a window to give thought to our own mental health and the health of those around us. In turn, for every print sold, $200 will go directly to Mental Health America, a leading community-based non-profit charity dedicated to the promotion of mental health, well-being and illness prevention. An organisation which Johnny describes as “a wonderful facility and an extremely deserving cause; they do a lot of great work there".
Exclusively available from Castle Fine Art.
