Ben and Stef’s screen prints
Today we have something very special to show you, a series of four one-off screen-printed artworks by our very talented fellow Two-Toner Marcus Taylor (head of Studio Papa).
Here is what Marcus had to say about the project: “Ben is from New Zealand. Stef is from Germany and the UK. They met in Australia and the rest is sweet history. Now they have a house, they’re getting hitched and having a kid. Things are serious you could say. So with that they decided to commission me to do a series of screen prints about all of their favorite nostalgia from the four continents that brought them together.
This project has been epic to say the least but I’m proud as hell as to how it turned out. Images of what they wanted were hard to come by and I had to embrace a Ben Frost inspired sense of copyright to get the job done. Library’s were pillaged. Research books were purchased. The internet was plundered for whatever I could find and then what I did find was res’d up to buggery and halftoned to within a fraction of screen-print-ablity. We failed a lot in the process but we also learned a lot about our craft. I couldn’t have done it without the great help of my fellow Two Toners who generously pitched in on this project.
These prints represent a little part of my life and now I’m happy to send them on their way to my good friends on the East Coast where they will forever remind them of an important part of their lives that brought them together.”
The club was super excited to help Marcus print his master-pieces and we’re chuffed with the results.
