There is something very intimate and humble when we closely examine the philosophy of print. When you dive deeper into the artwork, you begin to see more than just the fabric of paper, the color patterns and the mediums used. You see your own token of the original, both a mirror and a window as it is the two way passage to a world of your own. After all, it is the print of the artwork that moved you in particular way. This philosophy has been proven to be true as both the artists and fans communicate through such practice, in very good manner. There are few recent examples of prints that are so overwhelming, they affected the hearts and souls of many, but also reaching a high price at the auctions. One of them is Sepukku, the print silkscreen made by Pejac that depicts, in very poetical manner, the infamous Japanese form of ritual suicide performed by Samurai. One of the crucial segments of this artwork is that the edge of the blade becomes a blooming branch when it passes through the samurai. Another strong message comes from the artistic duo Low Bros comunicated by their new print titled We Own the Night.

There is a truly genuine and novel parable behind the work of the duo Low Bros. Two brothers, paired, working as one, each one guided by their own inner compass. Such compound of complementary strengths ought to produce something substantial in terms of creativity. Their work is full of ambiguities that, intertwined form new ones, but somehow, they still remain clear in their overall message. They mainly combine two opposing forces illustrated in contrast of the urban vs the nature, or more precisely, between the human and the animal. It is a very complex sentiment that these two revive in their work. While often playing with the interaction between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality, they succeed in obtaining the synergy of geometric and flowing organic shapes. We own the night is a perfect example of their work. The print comes in the limited edition of 40, made on 380 gr. Hahnemühle Cotton Rag paper. Size of the artwork is 60 x 80 cm / 23.62” x 31.5” and it’s available for only 210 Euro (270 $ + shipping). Each copy is number and signed by the artists.
