Leading editions purveyor Avant Arte is teaming up with the celebrated visual artist Paul Insect for the fourth time on a new collaboration. Insect is the London-based artist best known for his mixed-media approach to developing dynamic portraiture with a collagist appearance. The artist has worked with a number of artists including Banksy. The partnership is comprised of two new editions and color variants of four individual prints: The Reflection – Red, The Reflection – Blue, and The Observer.

The Reflection – Red piece arrives in an edition of 30 and is a 16 layer screen print featuring a mixture of metallic and pearlized inks on Somerset 410gsm radiant white satin paper, finished with colored glitter and high gloss varnish. In contrast, The Reflection – Blue arrives in an edition of 100. Both works arrive framed, float-mounted inside a white, round, painted wooden frame. Lastly, The Observer is rolled out in four distinct colors: gold, silver, purple, and black. Each print arrives in an edition of 50.

“We have worked with a lot of artists, but nobody makes prints like Paul does. Normally, when an artist makes a print for us it is based on an original artwork. But with Paul, it’s different. He doesn’t replicate a pre-existing work, but instead, he creates a whole new piece with a process specifically developed through experimental printing techniques. First, he sends a sketch to the master printer, and then there is a back and forth between the printer and his sketches, almost like an ongoing collaboration with his hand and the technology he uses,” said Christian Liuten of Avant Arte.

Get a closer look at the collaboration above and then head to Avant Arte’s website to learn more. All works will be available on January 15 at 2 p.m. GMT.

Elsewhere in art, Futura has filed a lawsuit against The North Face for copyright infringement.
