I really enjoy hearing about innovations, slightly out of the norm,
so thought I'd give you a quick update on 2 items of recent news from Brad Novak:
Printing on the back of the acrylic to retain the gloss surface,
Brad has developed a unique technique to give a mirror-like-effect
(seen in the picture below as relection of the floorboards in the tiki).
The 'mirror' is in different locations on each variant edition.
|Brad Novak, Reflect-A-Tiki 1.1, 2010|
5-colour Screenprint on Polycarbonate, 60x60cm, edition of 20.
Also, just before Christmas, 3 of Brad's images were showcased on Mr.Vintage t-shirts.
The NZ Artist Series designs are strictly limited edition, with only 50 of each t-shirt produced.
Each garment is individually numbered, along with the artist's signature,
and is packaged in custom-made personalised wooden gift boxes.
I think there are still a few left, if you want one, see the Mr.Vintage website to order.
|Brad Novak, Eye Chart For Aotearoa|
Mr.Vintage t-shirts, limited edition of 50.
There is also a few pages about Brad in Denis Robinson's book
called New Zealand Gallery, which came out in October 2010.
Good work Brad! I wonder what will be next???
