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.
Are You ready?
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.

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.

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!

Sequel

Posted in **News**, Music, Posters, Prints with tags , , on November 13, 2014 by malleus

Today, in Los Angeles, from 7 to 11 pm, on Sunset Boulevard at Iam8bit gallery, Malleus will be present at the show called Sequel with one silkscreen print.
Well, unfortunately we won’t be there ourselves, there’s an Ocean and lots of miles between our small town and LA… but we’re part of the show.

sequel

Sequel (check HERE) is an exhibition about imagination.
Jon of Iam8bit gallery contacted long time ago with this idea he had in mind about a show dedicated to movies that had never got a sequel. The idea was to think about one.
It was a very cool and quite difficult thing to do.
We didn’t want to pick up a world famous movie, some Kubrick, Tarantino or other masters seemed too easy.
So we decided to move on with an italian movie doing a Fellini sequel.
First of all cause we wanted to celebrate an italian master and we choose  “Giulietta degli spiriti” that is an incredible piece of art.
If You like Jodorowsky or Lynch, I suggest to search for it cause You’ll be shocked how outstanding and modern and visionary this Fellini movie is.
We thought about a “second act (atto secondo)” for it, cause the end of the movie is quite open and leaves different possible interpretations.
The first color has been a white ink.

gold

silver

Then after a gold metallic ink, we moved on with a pink and dark silver.
Fifth color is a black.

Last one, the sixth ink, has been a red.

giulietta-3

giulietta2

Giulietta-degli-spiriti-by-Malleus
We imagined the sequel of the movie as a coming back of the main character to her dreams and illusions.
The wild devilish and the moral religious sides of Giulietta that in the movie bring her to a personal conflict, are back again in “our” sequel and they’re holding each other in this print, like she’ll have to fight with her mind again.

You can check more about this movie, if You don’t know it on IMDB.
Enjoy this print and if You want to buy it, but You can’t make it to the show, after opening night, all remaining art will be posted online for WORLDWIDE purchase on Friday, November 14 @
http://store.iam8bit.com/
It’ll be available on our webstore from the 24th of November.
