My Life is Crap - 2’ is a vibrant eleven colour silkscreen printed on Somerset Satin paper. It depicts a wonderfully kitsch lamb bouncing between the tongue-in-cheek text ‘My Life is Crap’.This image received global recognition when it was employed by Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons in a major international advertising campaign. The vibrant colours, typography and retro sensibility are characteristic of Magda Archer’s work.

About the Artist
British artist and illustrator Magda Archer creates vibrant paintings inspired by her eccentric collection of paraphernalia. Her distinctive retro imagery straddles a Surreal-Pop kitsch sensibility.
In 2012 her painting "My Life is Crap" was used by Comme de Garcons in a major international advertising campaign. Magda Archer grew up in a minimalist, modern house with designer parents who enjoyed calm spaces. Perhaps rebelling from her parent's stark taste, Magda embarked on an art career bursting with colour, embellishment and visual humour.
