We are pleased to announce two new Don Ed Hardy lithographs, Ink is King and Man’s Ruin.
In Ink is King, an Oni (a Japanese folklore demon) is seen riding a koi fish on a wave. This demon brandishes his ink stone and brush, conjuring up a wacky mess above… two calligraphic Chinese ideograms (“ink” on the left and “king” on the right) floating in a purple cloud.
Ink is King is a five color lithograph printed on Magnani Pescia Crème paper 30 x 22” in an edition of 30, plus proofs. The publication price is $1,800 (subject to change).
In Man’s Ruin, a wolf is portrayed as a nurse, two iconic images often seen in tattoo flash. Below the wolf are two brightly colored birds blindfolded by “love” and “hate”.
Man’s Ruin is a four color lithograph printed on handmade Amate paper 18½ x 15” in an edition of 25, plus proofs. The publication price is $850 (subject to change).
