Some news

Hope You won’t be angry with us if we didn’t write anymore on the blog.
It’s been a very hectic period and we worked very hard on a lot of project and really didn’t find the time to put our fingers on the keyboard to share what was happening with You.
Of course, there are a lot of other “social” way to reach You, but it’s fun to be on this blog.
So, little by little, we’re gonna show You what’s going on at malleusdelic headquarter.
And what has happened there in the last weeks, of course.
Before showing You the new poster coming out in the next days, we want to remind You that Ufomammut (the band featuring Poia and Urlo with Vita) has a new record coming out in a couple of weeks and You can preorder one of the limited edition vinyls going HERE.
Moreover, I’m happy to announce we’ll be in the States and Canada in May (again, with Ufomammut… but never knows… we could be there as Malleus as well… You know we’re magic people!).
And of course, we’ll be in Europe too!
Check the dates HERE.
Said that, let’s go with the new print coming next week.
It’s for a Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Manfield gig in Nashville.
They’re touring the States supporting the new album in which they cover 12 Elliott Smith songs.
So, we took inspiration from a picture we found on internet of Elliot playing a mask on his face with his hands.
So we decided to pay homage to him, in our way.
The poster is on a light cream thick paper, it’s a 6 colors handprinted silkscreen and it’s a limited edition of 130 pieces.
First color is a red ink.

Then we worked on a shade from a metallic green to a gold.

The third screen has been for another shade, from a scarlet red to a blue.

And finally we used a dark brown to define the image.

Today we’re talking about the third eye.
We showed You the brand new print we’ve realized for the show of Monster magnet in Germany next week.
And now we’re ready to go and present You AJNA, the art print we worked out on metallic paper, with fluo, metallic and iridescent inks, taken from the Monster Magnet design.

It’s called Ajna, that is the name of the sixth chakra (the third eye).
It’s on silver metallic paper and it’s a very limited edition of 42 pieces.

Hey all!
It’s been a loooooong time since the last post.
We’ve been closed in our studio forging new ideas, preparing screens, paper, inks, brainstorming and sketching new things on paper and so now we’ve starting the engine to run again, ready for printing a lot of stuff.
In these days we’ve put our hands on the first silkscreen of the year.
It’s for a gig of Monster Magnet in Germany, in Frankfurt, on the 3rd of February 2015.
It’s a 3 colors limited edition handprinted silkscreen on raw light brown heavy paper.
We’ve worked on a run of about 130 pieces (we’re numbering them tomorrow) and we’ve also realized an art print version with different colors and on different paper (and we’ll show You this tomorrow!)
100 pieces will fly to Germany for the show and the other ones will be on our webstore on the 4th of february.
The first color is a gold ink, as You can imagine watching the pic my cat took…

Then we worked out a blue ink.

Then we printed a transparent white layer with the name of the band on top of all.

2014

Posted in **News**, Events with tags , , on December 30, 2014 by malleus

We’re at the end of another year, another 365 days passed between a lot of projects, drawings, prints, videos, music, vibes, dreams and nightmares.
And it’s been a cool year, thinking back at it.
I can’t tell You why, but I feel like it’s been a cool one, if I think at it.
As always, we’ve done a lot of things we had in mind in the way we wanted, no rules, just the feeling we need to do something in that moment for some reason…
Hope You’ve enjoyed this year too and I’m pretty sure we’ll spent the next one together again.
Keep us following us!
Have a great great new year from Lu, Poia and Urlo aka Malleus.

Solstice

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Events, Posters, Prints with tags , , on December 18, 2014 by malleus

It’s almost winter.
And the end of the year is getting closer.
All of a sudden will be 15 years ahead to 2k.
I remember when it was going to turn from 1999 to 2000… there was this fear of the millenium bug… all the computer had to shut down, we were supposed to enter a second middle age… well, not for the computers maybe, but it happened.
Anyway, sunday will be the first day of winter, we’ll move from the darkness to the light.
Days will start in getting longer and this is a good thing.
But, like every year, when we get close to the end of the year, I start in thinking about what we’ve done in these 12 months.
We did a lot in this 2014 and I’m happy about everything.
So, we want to celebrate with a last print.
It’s an art print and it’ll be released on sunday the 21st.
Obviously it’s called “Solstice”.
It’s a very limited edition of 77 copies and it’s a 9 colors plus glittered ink on very heavy black paper.
Let’s go and see it!

We started with 2 colours at a time, with a shade from a browny purple to a light violet, both metallic inks.

01

 

Then we moved on with a brown and then a gold ink.

03

 

As You can see there’s a door, a very heavy wooden one.
And the 5th ink has been a metallic one again, a light blue silver.
04

 

The sixth and seventh colors came into a shade again.
And now You can see there’s the shape of a woman outside the door.

05

Eight color is a black, to define the details of the wooden door.

06

 

And then the nineth color is a white ink.
Snow, a lot of snow, like there’s a storm, the wind opens the door and outside a woman is staring at us.07

08

09

Then we added more power to this iconic print with some incredible glittered ink.
It’s very difficult to make it appear in a photo, it’s a translucent ink, shading from white to silver to green and blu.

10

 

And this is SOLSTICE, the final print of this 2014.

solstice

Hope You’ll like it.
It’ll be on sale this sunday, on our westore.
Have a great Winter Solstice!

Black is back

Posted in **News**, Prints with tags , , , on November 28, 2014 by malleus

It’s the black friday.
And it’s on our webstore too.
Well, I should say webstores, cause we’ve a very nice discount (20%off  + a mistery print on every order) on the malleusdelic one and a 15% off on the supernaturalcat one.
So, considering it’ll last till next monday, You’ve a lot of time to grab Your favorite print or music.
One very important thing about the Malleusdelic webstore is that the Black friday code “NERO” is not working for the t-shirts cause they’re not a product we directly do.
They’re on the IfMerch webstore, in Canada.
Speaking of which…
We’ve 2 new tees coming.
They’re Jacqueline Ess and Prey.
The first one is taken from the print we did a few time ago for Clive Barker’s Jacqueline Ess.

And I must say it looks gorgeous!
You can have it going HERE.
The second one is called “PREY” and it’s taken from the print we silkscreened for the first international Pearl Jam phot exhibition in Milano, called Five Horizon.
And this one looks great too.
They’re totally great printers at IfMerch!

You can have one of these HERE.
All right!
Have a great weekend and if You’re in Firenze tomorrow, come and say hi at Cycle Club in Calenzano.
We’ll be there with our band Ufomammut and with some Malleus prints too!

MONO

Posted in **News**, Art Prints, Music, Posters, Prints with tags , , , on November 19, 2014 by malleus

Mono are a very cool japanese band.
They are touring Europe and they asked us to realize their official tour poster.
And it’s been a pleasure, our collaboration lasts since a few years.
Their last album is called “Rays of Darkness” and “The Last Dawn” (it’s an album in 2 parts)
We started from there and our imagination lead us to the vision of a woman cut through by sun rays.
We wanted something very iconic, simple but at the same time very detailed.
We used a green raw paper and we printed a double shade of colors.
The screens used are three but the colors are actually 5.

01

 

First we worked on 2 yellow inks, a lighter one fading into a darker one.

02

Then we printed and orange going to red.
We wanted to give the idea of the light as much as possible.

03

04

Third color, for details and inscriptions, has been a black ink.

06

07

08

And here below You can see the result.

We realized 333 copies of this print.
300 are on tour with Mono and You can grab them during one of their shows in Europe.
Check here for the tour dates.

Then we realized a very limited art print called “Shine”.
It’s on a gold metallic paper and it’s 45 copies only.

No inscriptions on this one and a few differences from the regular edition.
Posters will be on sale on our webstore this friday.
So… stay tuned!
