Taking place between February 11th and the 18th, artists headed over to the Kaka’ako neighbourhood to create a bunch of new murals and installations.

Maya Hayuk releases her 1st lithograph “False Flag”

maya_hayuk01

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

Over The Desk – A VNA Book Review

Not something we usually do, and probably won’t get around to doing again for quite some time, but we thought we’d review some of the books that we’ve had spread over the desk acting as upmarket coasters for the past month.

It’s also probably the only time you’ll see publications about animal porn next to books that include the Vatican’s ltd edition record releases. Unless perhaps that sort of thing goes on at the Vatican when their librarian’s car isn’t being used to smuggle hundreds of kilos of illicit drugs. Who knows…
