Paperworks Laboratories is proud to present “Un Dicho” a limited edition fine art screen print from prolific Los Angeles street/gallery artist RETNA. This 3 color hand pulled serigraph utilizes RETNA’s calligraphic style which he is known for. At an early age, RETNA was introduced to L.A.’s mural culture. While still in high school, he led one of the largest and most innovative graffiti art collectives the city has witnessed. He is perhaps best known for appropriating fashion advertisements and amplifying them with his unique layering, intricate line work, text-based style and incandescent color palette reflecting an eclectic artistic tradition. RETNA became just as notorious for his ornate painting technique as his timeless style: he used paintbrushes mixed with the traditional spray can. Many of his pieces synthesize the line between fine art and graffiti, power and opposition, tradition and advancement. This print will be in a very limited edition of 50 pieces and will be starting at $100 and going up in price after the first 20 are sold.

Paperworks Laboratories linked up with legendary Los Angeles graffiti crew
AWR/MSK to create this benefit print to coincide with their show at Canvas
called “Send Lawyers, Guns and Money.” Featured on this print is Revok,
Retna, Augor, and Pose. These writers are nothing short of amazing. From
showing their artwork in galleries worldwide to having Takashi Murakami
take down one of his billboards they vandalized to keep for his personal
collection this crew will be making a lot of noise in the art world for
years to come. This 18×24 inch 5 colors hand pulled fine art print
featuring all 4 artists signatures will be available exclusively online at
Paperworks Laboratories. The print will be in a very limited edition of
100 and only 30 will be available online.
Thanks and Best,
Paperworks Laboratories www.paperworkslab.com
