We were commissioned in November 2013 to produce two limited editions of prints for the Sheffield based artist, Piers Williams. Piers works out of the Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works Studio on Brown Street where he produces beautifully intricate oil paintings, his main subject being flowers. His work is sold through out the UK and he has a strong following in China.
We are used to working with more graphical images but this print was approached with a painter’s eye, dealing with the interaction of colours at different levels of opacity. Merging the painter’s method of building colour with successive overlays, and the clarity of screen print has created a striking image that couples the vibrant block colours of the background with the delicacy of the Iris flowers.
We shipped many of these prints to China, where Piers had a solo exhibition in the 798 art district of Beijing.
