Impression Very Fine.
Deeply pigmented. Printed on cream-colored, hand-made Japanese paper using Japanese pigments, gum, and rice-paste.
Condition Pristine.
Reference/Illus 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.
Comments Tom's second Portrait of Barack Obama--the 44th President of the United States of America. This abstract design is made after a "carbon nanotube" image created by scientists at the University of Michigan. A very "Limited Edition" totalling ONLY 35 prints. With this new series of "American Presidents" prints, Kristensen has discovered immediate success--reporting to us that this first design of Barack Obama is now "sold out."
