Printed Matter 8

Stopped by Giant Robot to attend Printed Matter 8 opening reception this weekend — the walls were filled with great arts and prints!

These lovely flowers and birds prints were nicely letterpressed.

This piece was letterpressed also. + Foil stamped.

It’s going on until August 4th so if you are in the neighborhood, check it out!

Speaking of August… I will be going away starting this Thursday until August 11th — going to San Francisco and then, to Japan! Few more days to finish up my projects and get ready… wish me luck ;)

Picasso: Themes and Variations

One of the exhibitions I saw at the MoMA last Sunday and thought it was really cool was Picasso’s “Themes and Variations” — it explores Picasso’s creative process through the medium of printmaking. Especially, it was so great to see his linoleum work as I sometimes work with the same medium.

Here is his inspiration:

and his work:

“One series of lithographs shows Picasso progressing, step-by-step, from a realistic depiction of a bull to one that is completely abstracted into schematic lines.” — I loved this!

Obviously, there are many more at the exhibition, I enjoyed it very much.

Oh wow, it is JULY!!! Happy July 1st, everyone!!
