Recently street artist, Swoon launched on her new website as a platform for selling small, hand crafted prints. Her first run to be released is a series of 36 variant prints, each of which are portraits of fellow artist Ben Wolf, who has collaborated with Swoon frequently in the past.
Speaking on her process, Swoon says “Each piece begins as a miniature, screen printed version of a hand carved block print almost sixteen times its size. The prints are then treated with a variety of hand applied effects, including coffee stain, hand painting and sewing, integration of paper cutouts and collage scraps, ink washes and stencils, with a final presentation on layered handmade papers, weathered wood, or repurposed objects.”
Each print comes signed, and vary in price from $1,800-$3,200.
