BA (Hons) Fine Art Course Leader, Richard Waring’s painting featured in the latest Bourne film, Jason Bourne.
Richard won a national competition run by Warner Bros to produce a commissioned painting for the Universal Pictures film.
The brief was to create a painting that featured the American flag. Richard created an homage to American painter, sculptor and printmaker, Jasper Johns, with his piece: ‘Homage to Johns’.
The painting was displayed as a featured prop on the CIA offices set. The painting is regularly visible behind Tommy Lee Jones.
Richard said: “I was really surprised and thrilled to be offered the commission. I paid homage to the iconic American artist Jasper Johns’ 1955 work, ‘Flag’.
“I responded to Johns’ work by using my intrigue with pictorial space and different types of disparate mark making.”
Peter Walpole, Head Set Designer for Jason Bourne, said: “It’s brilliant and has pride of place!”
