Interesting news are arriving form Paris where Maya Hayuk recently approved and signed her new upcoming limited edition. Created in collaboration with PrintThemAll.com @ Idem Studio, this massive print is her 1st ever lithograph release and it will be available at random time on 4th of June via PrintThemAll website.
“TRUE FLAG is my first Lithograph printed in Paris in May 2015. Each color is hand-painted on mylar and burned to aluminum then printed on gorgeous, hand-ripped paper. There were no computers used to make this print – it’s truly an analogue artwork.
For the print itself, i wanted to experiment with the litho process, which i was not very familiar with. Under the guidance of Print Them All and Idem, i was able to work through several ideas before arriving on this image. it’s ultimately directly related to my screen prints, but with all of the magic that Lithography has to offer and inspired by this incredible Print Studio i had the honor to be able to work in.
TRUE FLAG is a tapestry of intersecting and overlaid colors, as if all flags were woven into one. The name “True Flag” is the opposite of “False Flag” – a covert military operation designed to deceive in such a way that the military action appears to be carried out by entities other than those who actually planned and executed them.” – Maya Hayuk
We just received these exclusive images of Hayuk working on “True Flag”, an image created of multiple crosses in 10 different colors. Using the transparency of the paint as well as the dripping effect, the artist created slightly different piece that has all the elements of her most recognizable work. This edition is measuring the impressive 103 x 72,5 cm which makes it her biggest print to date. Freshly signed and numbered by the artist the other day, the prints will be released in an edition of 99 examples.
