TEACH x Maharishi Year of the Rat Artworks
Release Date: Available on maharishi’s website
Release Price: Prices range between £5 GBP to £750 GBP (approx. $6 USD to $917 USD)
maharishi has enlisted the British graffiti writer TEACH once again for a series of paintings, prints and T-shirts in celebration of the Year of the Rat. The collection also draws inspiration from the photojournalist character played by Dennis Hopper in the 1979 film Apocalypse Now. TEACH’s signature “YE” throw-up is transformed into an “Apocalypse Rat” using a technique that brings corrosive acid into contact with metal panels to create a rust texture. Small laser-cut TEACH tag works are also available in a series of 20 alongside three signed enamel paintings on paper and an edition of 20 screenprints.
Prints for Ethiopia
Release Date: Available on Print for Ethiopia’s website
Release Price: $60 USD each
Ethiopian photographers and artists are coming together in support of COVID-19 relief efforts with a charitable print campaign called Prints for Ethiopia. All proceeds from the sale will go towards Temsalet Kitchen, a social enterprise that feeds homeless kids and families in Addis Ababa during the pandemic. From city scenes and rural landscapes, as well as intimate portraits and figurative artworks, the 8-by-11 inch prints evoke the culture of Ethiopia through each artist’s style and perspective.
