Japanese Paper Maruosawashi 70g.
Lithograph 10 colors printed with Marinoni machines and hand cut.
"egariM" is my first lithograph. This is reflecting one of the latest scene from my work, which catches an instant of the shifting moment. The performers standing in the realm of impermanence. By looking into each established individuals on the stage, we can catch the emotions such as hope and fear from their existence. This is also causing another Mirage on the plot - the cargo ship capsizing in the wave. But if we observe this very moment by seeing the whole picture, we may detect the illusion builded up by those lines and particles are only created one character, who is holding the sentiments inside ones mind. The prints is based on one of the main painting from my latest show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York. Through working with Print Them All and the Idem Paris, I am honored and humbled to have this great opportunity transforming this original piece into lithograph, I deem this is one of the best prints that I have made so far."

Street artist DALeast joined a graffiti crew after growing disillusioned with his conservative art education in China. The artist, who doesn’t reveal his real name and whose pseudonym has no true meaning, created paintings, sculptures, performances, and installations as a member of China’s Wuhan group. Now based in South Africa, DALeast primarily paints animals with an amalgamation of layered, fractured lines juxtaposed against shadows. The energetic creatures appear to jump off the walls. His murals, which are often hundreds of feet long, are inspired by the South African landscape and grounded in the Chinese emphasis on the spirit. DALeast uses art to express emotions and to address the tension between natural and artificial spaces.
