50 x Retna

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.
