||Kristensen's Australian studio (photo)
Limited Edition #30/50, pencil-signed by artist.
(self-carved/self-printed by artist)
||9 3/4 x 11 3/8
(plus WIDE margins)
||Very Fine. Deeply pigmented.
Printed on thick Japanese kozo washi 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 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.
||Betty Grable was America's #1 military pin-up girl during the War years and
whose bikini-clad body decorated many US bomber airplanes.
A "Limited Edition" totalling ONLY 50 prints.
With Kristensen's new series of "American Presidents" prints, Kristensen has vaulted himself
into popularity and discovered immediate success--reporting his first design of Barack Obama has
quickly become "sold out."
