Shepard Fairey – Commanda Mural *SOLD*

Shepard Fairey, Commanda Mural, 2015   SOLD OUT

Shepard Fairey, Commanda Mural, 2015This  “Commanda Mural” print is a co-publishing collaboration with the Ernst Hilger Gallery based on the mural I did in Vienna Austria near the gallery. I’m very excited about this print because the high end process used is very similar to photogravure, which is one of the earliest etching techniques used to reproduce continuous tone photography. In this case, the printing plate used is zinc, opposed to copper. The zinc plate was prepared with photosensitive varnish in acid bath to yield the printing surface for the black areas of the print. The black area of the work was printed by hand on printing press; the color part of the work was printed with lithography. The art was printed by the esteemed Stamperia Carini in San Giovanni Valdarno, Italy.  The paper used is 100% cotton rag. Stamperia Carini uses  only raw materials of the high quality for its editions.

All inks used in the printing process are the highest degree of resistance to the light available on the market; the paper usually used for the edition is the highest standard of pure cotton (100%). The print looks incredible in person and I’m very happy with how the process translated many elegant, and hard to capture, nuances. -Shepard
