Edition 1/50 was instantly snapped up by the awesome creative Gordon Toi (pictured middle) & it now sits proudly at the entrance of the House of Natives studio in Mangere Bridge. A labour of love, our first fine art print took weeks of preparation & production at the Gold Award Winning warehouse of Artirite Screenprinting & the project was directed by Glenn Taylor (pictured left).
The original image was spray painted onto an interior wall (approx 2 x 3.5m) & photographed by our brother & friend Raymond Sagapolutele TMD Crew (Rimoni Photography). This high res image was then separated into a CMYK process & each layer screenprinted to create this vibrant & rich image. A layer of white sits beneath all of the colour layers, the kaoako designs representing sacred maunga (mountains) are whitewashed & the Tui itself has a spot gloss layer which is difficult to see in the photo. You have to see it in person to understand the quality of workmanship they are known for at Artrite, the attention to detail & the process has created an amazingly high quality screen print that we are extremely proud of. They will be available in selected galleries over the next few weeks but remember they are a limited edition so get in quick. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries.
