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.
First we worked on 2 yellow inks, a lighter one fading into a darker one.
Then we printed and orange going to red.
We wanted to give the idea of the light as much as possible.
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!
