Following Jun Cha’s “RONIN” exhibition at Takashi Murakami’s Hidari Zingaro Gallery in June, the LA-based artist returns with a new print edition. Taking the title of the show and inspired by an original painting, each glicée print (24″ tall × 32″ wide) features a black and white composition of a skeletal samurai warrior riding a horse. Each edition arrives signed and numbered with a gold embossed chop at the bottom of each piece.

“Inspired by the sculpture of Kusunoki Masashige and the life of Miyamoto Musashi, this print is produced on special museum etching paper which retains the depth of the original painting and includes a custom gold embossment of a resurrected Samurai,” said the artist in an online statement.

‘RONIN’ will release on Jun Cha’s website on July 16. For more notable releases, take a look at this week’s Best Art Drops.

•⚔️?⚔️• Ronin is a signed and numbered limited edition of giclée prints available starting at 10 AM PDT on Tuesday, July 16th. The edition is limited by the number of prints sold and never reprinted.⁣ ⁣ Ronin meaning ‘wave man’ refers to the masterless lone samurai during feudal Japan. At the end of the Edo period the warrior culture that built a nation changed into a society of consumers and technology. Swords were banned, bushido code outlawed and the samurai were declared rebels of the empire. For these Ronin the true way of the warrior transcended blind military nationalism. It meant to live and die by principles aligned with Nature to cultivate inner potential through physical, mental and spiritual self discipline. Inspired by the sculpture of Kusunoki Masashige and the life of Miyamoto Musashi, this print is produced on special museum etching paper which retains the depth of the original painting and includes a custom gold embossment of a resurrected Samurai.⁣ LINK IN BIO
