    Whereabouts of God #23

    Lets learn a little about this artist. Sparkling and sweet, Hikari Shimoda’s work is at once enchanting and disarming, portraying a world where cuteness and horror coexist. Based in Nagano, Japan, Shimoda first studied illustration at the prestigious Kyoto Saga University of Art and Aoyama Juku School before beginning her career as a professional contemporary artist in 2008. Soon after, she was selected for her first solo exhibition at Motto Gallery in Tokyo and has since held exhibitions in galleries worldwide, including Japan, the United States, Canada, and Europe.

    Here are some other photos of Hikari's art pieces.  Her art pieces can be found on Pinterest and Instagram and there are many to see and enjoy.

     

    This is our first artist release of Hikari's work and we are so excited to offer this print to the art lovers who follow and appreciate her work.  Don't wait, the clock is ticking....only 25 pieces available, this custom artist print will for sure blow out the door!!

     

  • Vintage Prints - A Photo With A Story

    Photographs tell a story.  What the stories are, we may never know, however, we are intrigued by the uniqueness of the images and words they never speak. We have some great vintage photo art prints that would be great conversation pieces to add to your walls.

     

    Museum Wood Print

    This is a great photo image.  Its old, but yet the colors pop. You are drawn to the bold red doors and curious what is behind the glass. This photo image would look amazing in a room full of books or old antiques.

    Cut and Color Wood Print

    I can only imagine the conversations that took place here.  This haunting, yet quieting photo image makes you wonder...where did everyone go?  The bright lime green walls are downplayed by the subtle brown chairs and peeling paint from the walls which appears like confetti on the ground. If you enjoy the beauty of deserted, storytelling photos, this is a winner.

    El Cortez Wood Print

    Old buildings such as this have such stunning architecture.  Everything from the windows to the ledges are so impressive.  This image of the El Cortez hotel would hang beautifully by itself or in accompaniment with other images.  The El Cortez is a landmark hotel that was built in 1926 in San Diego and once was the tallest building in the city.  Now this is a picture that has many stories about it.

    No Vacancy Wood Print

    I love how this photo art image has the rough edges on it which gives it an old vintage look.  The block glass windows and color of the building draw you in.  Photo art can be fun, nostalgic, sad, youthful, angry, haunting, soothing and many other things.  The image may already have a story about it, or you can create a story with the images on your walls.

  • Artist Spotlight - Sugar Fueled

    Prints on Wood was recently visited by artist, Sugar Fueled/Michael Banks! Michael stopped by to personally sign each fine art piece we had printed. This piece is called Cream and is a limited edition fine art custom wood print that has already sold out.

    Sugar Fueled - Cream

    Michael Banks is a freelance artist from Burbank, CA who specializes in pop surrealism, lowbrow oil paintings and comics filled with cute, big eyed characters and animals in colorful, candy filled scenes. Michael planted his roots as an artist over 22 years ago selling tattoo flash around the world and has since ventured in tattoos, clothing, music, street art, stencil pop art, sketch cards, children's stories and comics that have led him to the sweet world that he resides and paints in today. Michael's art has taken on adventures in every major city across the United States.  Lets take a look at some of the other adorable sweet and yummy prints that we have printed of Michael's artwork.

    Before Cream, there was Frosting.  

    Spooky is a Boo-tiful creation perched on top of a mound of yumminess.

    Lastly, there is Sprinkle.  Who wouldn't love this tempting sweet donut with the wide eyed kitty? 

    Sugar Fueled art pieces are great for all ages and play on the emotions of sweetness, innocence and playfulness.  Watch for the next edition from Sugar Fueled, they are a limited editions and sell out quickly.

  • Above the grain

    What makes wood prints so appealing to the eye is the natural wood grain that shows through. This feature enhances the artfulness of one's print that will last for many years.  How do we do this? By printing an image directly on the wood itself...lets take a look.

    This beautiful print was printed on our 100% birch wood in landscape orientation.  Amazing!  The colors show through so clearly and the natural wood grain looks perfect with the couple's natural background, the ocean.

    Not just your ordinary champion trophy here.  This shield was also printed on our birch wood with a vintage matte finish (raw wood finish) and the final touches of cutting it into shape.  I love how the wood grain gives this trophy a rustic, masculine look.

    Here is another stunning wood print that shows off all the details of this country style home.  This image was printed on our hand cut and hand sanded birch wood and they added a natural gloss finish.  I love how the sepia tone meshed with the wood grain gives this custom wood print a vintage look.  Now that you have seen the options available for direct wood printing, you can get started with your custom wood print order.  No two pieces of wood are the same so each wood print truly is a one of a kind. Ready, set, print!
