Construct and Destroy

Artwork Description
This is a premium-quality print on canvas of the 1940 surrealist artwork Construct and Destroy by artist Yves Tanguy. Construct and Destroy is a magnificent piece of art with a distinctive aesthetic. Whilst the colours in the palette are limited, there is an intriguing contrast between them. The muted colours in the backdrop draw attention to the artwork’s other features. Contrasting colours like yellow, blue, and orange truly shine out in the background’s limited colour palette, drawing the viewer’s attention there.
French surrealist painter Raymond Georges Yves Tanguy, also known as just Yves Tanguy, lived from January 5th 1900, until January 15th 1955. Nonrepresentational surrealism is a distinctive, instantly recognisable style used in Yves Tanguy’s paintings. They primarily feature huge, abstract landscapes in an extremely constrained colour scheme, with only sporadic flashes of accent colours in contrast. These extraterrestrial landscapes are typically filled with a variety of abstract shapes, some as angular and sharp as glass shards and others with an intriguingly organic appearance.

Flexible and helpful

We used Blue Horizon to make a beautiful piece of word art for a very special birthday. They were absolutely wonderful to deal with … they have a range of gorgeous designs, they were flexible and helpful and the resulting word art picture was absolutely loved by everyone. It’s a really special and unique gift – we collected meaningful words, memories and phrases from family members. There were tears and laughter upon the unveiling. Highly recommend!

Custom Mondrian print

I wanted vinyl wall decals of a very particular size made using a very particular Mondrian print. The staff at Blue Horizon were amazing – not only producing the decals to millimeter perfection but organising the fastest delivery to my door. They arrived in perfect condition and right on time. I will be returning to Blue Horizon again for any artwork I might be looking to purchase.

Linda Anderson

Very professional

Very professional, the team were patient with my requests and created a number of proofs, until I was happy with the final print. I live in Singapore and was expecting the shipping to take a number of weeks, I was amazed at how quickly it was sent – within a week – fully stretched and ready to hang. I love looking at it each day as I walk down my staircase, I will purchase from the team at Blue Horizon again.

Cannot say enough good things about this company. I have used them three times now for three different pieces of work (custom designed canvas, framed print of a photo taken from a holiday, framed prints off their website) and each time the quality has been outstanding
Customer service (Sally) is also super helpful and friendly!
