James Jean returns with a new limited print inspired by an original painting from his most recent “Azimuth” exhibit at Tokyo’s Kaikai Kiki gallery space. Entitled Sun Tarot, each signed and numbered print is sized at 27-inches tall and 19-1/2-inches wide. Not to mention, the artwork is meticulously silkscreened with spot gloss alongside gold foil detailing on the focus lines. Rounding out the design is a bespoke embossment of two “entangled bees sampling pollen (or is it venom?) gathered from the wood nymph,” said the artist.
You can purchase a print at James Jean’s official website starting 8:00 am PDT on June 12 until 7:59 PDT on June 13. For more art news, check out this mystery dinosaur skeleton that is selling for a hefty $2.3 million USD.
Sun Tarot is a signed and numbered time-limited edition of giclée prints. They will be made available for 24 hours starting at 8:00 AM PDT on Tuesday, June 12 and ending at 7:59 AM PDT on Wednesday, June 13. The edition will be limited by the number of prints sold during those 24 hours and never reprinted. Each flower in Sun Tarot is precisely silkscreened with spot gloss, and the focus lines from the original painting are rendered in gold foil. A custom-designed embossment features a pair of entangled bees sampling pollen (or is it venom?) gathered from the wood nymph. Sun Tarot was recently exhibited at Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Tokyo for Azimuth, a solo show by James during April of 2018, a time for appreciating the transient beauty of flowers in Japan known as hanami.
