[New Print Release]

The Venal Muse - Benjamin Murphy

The second of my hand-finished Baudelaire-inspired linoprints is now available.

The Venal Muse is hand-drawn, cut, and printed; and is heavily hand embellished with ink. Each print is unique.

Recently I’ve been experimenting witch creating smaller tape drawings whilst trying to preserve the new level of detail I’ve been doing. Partially because they are challenging, but also because they are easier to transport.

Towards the end of February I will be exhibiting at Subliminal Projects in LA, and some of these new smaller tape drawings will be going there. This one has sold already though and won’t be.

Traffic Gallery Italy Exhibition

after-negroni-diptychLast month I was invited to participate in the Jacopo Negretti inspired exhibition at Traffic Gallery in Italy.

I decided to go over and get inspired by the town in which he lived, before creating the works for the show.

Above are the two tape drawings I created for the show: After Negroni 1 & 2.


Thanks to Roberto Ratti and Traffic Gallery.
