||Kristensen's Australian studio (photo)
Limited Edition #25/35, pencil-signed by artist.
(self-carved/self-printed by artist)
||5 5/8 x 14 1/8 (plus WIDE margins)
Deeply pigmented. Printed on cream-colored, hand-made Japanese paper using
Japanese pigments, gum, and rice-paste.
||Although not a "Made in Japan" woodblock-- Kristensen is self-trained in Japanese carving/printing
techniques, and all of Tom's prints are also made using only Japanese papers, pigments, and tools.
Here are a few photos Tom sent to us taken inside his studio.
Kristensen is clearly a very talented and creative artist/printmaker.
||Portrait of Barack Obama--the 44th President of the United States of America.
A very "Limited Edition" totalling ONLY 35 prints.
With this new series of "American Presidents" prints, Kristensen has discovered
to us that this first design of Barack Obama has become "sold out."
