  • ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: LUKE CHUEH

    Luke Chueh has perfected the art of painting emotionless bears with sad empty eyes that stare directly into your soul, and we love him for that! That's why we're highlighting his art this week, we dig what he does and how he does it. But he likes to paint other things too, usually mishmoshing bad jokes with pop-culture references.

    If that thrilling and informative vignette has wet your whistle, then guess what, you just hit the art-nerd jackpot! We still got a few The Nose Knows prints available, including the big 'ol honking one from DCON. Although if you're more of a Luke traditionalist and are looking for something... oh, I don't know... white bear / thousand-yard-stare, then we got something for you too!

  • WE THE PEOPLE

    Describing itself at an "Art Machine For Social Change", The Amplifier Foundation  has commissioned our good friend, Shepard Fairey to design some posters for their upcoming "We The People" campaign.

    shep1

    Serving as an art based protest of America's 45th Presidential Inauguration for President-Elect Donald J. Trump, The "We The People" project is focused on distributing posters featuring the art of Shepard Fairey as well as Ernesto Yerena, and Jessica Sabogal, at this event.

    As as some areas of Washington DC will have restrictions on the carrying of signs and posters, The Amplifier Foundation intends to get around these restrictions with their kickstarter campaign. where they have taken out full page ads in the Washington Post of these images, allowing people to carry them into these areas discreetly, paste them on walls, or hang them from the windows of their home.

    shep3

    For those planning to attend the Inauguration in person, or who are local to the area, keep an eye on the social media accounts of Obey Giant and The Amplifier Foundation to discover how to get some of these signs that Prints On Wood was able to produce for this event, as they will be distributed in DC at Metro stops, out the back of moving vans, and drop locations to be announced as the 45th Inauguration approaches. The artwork of these files will also be available on The Amplifier Foundation's site for download should you want to print these images yourself.

  • 4 Tips on How to Read & Analyze a Painting

    Art is complex. Art is thought-provoking. Art is captivating and stimulating. With that being said, no piece of art is the same. Different pieces of art have different meanings, though - of course, all pieces are open to individual interpretation.

    Here are our tips on how to read and analyze a painting:

    1. Research the artist! 
      Sometimes, knowing who the artist is will tell you all that you need to know about a piece of art. A quick Google search could bring you to their personal website, which may contain an "About Me" to summarize their work. Most artists have a special theme that connects all of their artwork together. That alone can tell an observer everything they need to know about the art.jermaine-rodgers-art-print-on-wood
      "Tell Me How to Help You" by Jermaine Rodgers
    2.  Analyze the colors, shapes, symbols, and characters.
      Take a closer look at the art. Every aspect should have a different meaning.
      -Are there different colors? Different colors tend to have different meanings, and can contribute to different moods.
      -Are there any shapes and symbols? These can provide clear meanings for every piece of art.
      -How about the characters? Every character has a different story. Their actions, appearance, and art style can help you piece together the art's story - which brings us to the next point.

    3. Does the art tell a story?
      Remember, it's important to take a look at the big picture. Carefully examine every detail of the painting. Ask yourself why it was put the together the way it was. Draw a conclusion from there.
      Tip: The art piece's name may be a big clue to what the whole piece is about!

    4. Finally, take a look at the canvas.
      The canvas is important! Here at Prints on Wood, many of the artists that work with us choose to print their paintings on wood canvases. Some will say that the plywood adds a subtle, vintage feel to their paintings. Others will say that they appreciate the way the wood grain enhances the color and style of the artwork.

  • Sharon Schindler Photography

    Sharon Schindler is a well-known photographer, famous for her pictures involving nature and architecture. Sharon's photography explores the interplay of light, nature, and physical media. She has also began to transition to documenting stories about old historical buildings. Her photos work to capture and are meant to preserve these buildings for years to come.

    Typically, her photos are printed on wood or stone in order to allow the viewer to connect with Sharon's perspective. The wood grain gives the portrait a more natural, vintage feel and appearance. All of her prints can be ordered on birch wood with a frame of choice. Sharon's art has won numerous awards for her photos of nature and has had her photos displayed in many places around the world.

    Here at Prints on Wood, we believe that vintage art and  custom wood prints truly do go hand in hand. We believe that artwork and photographs are at their best when printed on wood.

    sharon_schindler_vintage_shoes_print_on_wood_custom_art_print_high_quality_wood_print

    We've created a wood print from her artwork called "Vintage Shoes." The wood canvas transforms and enhances the original art piece in a way that no other canvas can. The wood grain shows through the artwork and gives the piece a truly unique look and feel. No wood print is the same.
