ABOUT THIS ART:
In the words of the artist:
"El Quetzal era bastante conocido por los Mayas, quienes en su idioma lo llamaban KUKUL. El nombre con que se le conoce proviene del nahua Quetzali que quiere decir "hermosa pluma", lo cual viene a ser sinĂ³nimo de bello o precioso."

Our translation:
"The Quetzal (bird) was well known by the Mayans, who in their own language called it KAKUL. The name that we know it by comes from Quetzali in the Nahuatl language, meaning "beautiful feather," which has now come to be synonymous with beautiful or precious."

Known internationally for his large murals and stencil work, Stinkfish commonly refers to photographs of local people that he takes in passing and later turns into stencils.

"Another source of my subjects is from photographs that I find lying on the street while walking, broken, bent, missing. I have a large collection of these photographs, some I find interesting for bringing to a wall." - Stinkfish

This is the first ever multi-method print on 1xRUN, and perfectly fitting for an artist like Stinkfish. In producing these, we created a set of giclee prints of an old magazine cover he found, to use as a base. Afterwards, his stencil design was screen printed on top of the giclee with a thick layer of special black, glossy ink. The high quality image looks truly vintage, and silkscreen effect of the mask stands well above the image, just as the stencils he is known for.

In more brief parlance: we think this is a really cool print.
