  • Artist Spotlight: Jeff Gillette

    You saw our new exclusive print right? The Disneyland Sign “Dead” print by Jeff Gillette? If you didn’t you should click this link right now and go check it out because each fine art wood print is hand numbered and signed by Gillette and … but don't wait, we only have a limited amount.

    Jeff Gillette paintings often examine the aesthetic structures and visual patterns of human settlement. He believes there is something great behind the obviously chaotic and desperate appearance of these places. Gillette also sees ironic and amusing juxtapositions that occur when Disney, corporate logos, and pop icons from consumer culture shows up as building blocks of shanty settlement construction.

    We have worked with Gillette before on another print you may have seen. The print was called, Castle Slum and also was a print that involved Disney. Unfortunately, this print is now sold out so if I were you, I would jump on the chance to purchase his new print before it sells out!

  • Artist Spotlight: Isabel Samaras

    Time for another artist spotlight! Today we will be shining the light on artist, Isabel Samaras. Samaras has a unique talent of connecting her artwork to references of classic horror movies, ancient mythologies, cherished TV characters, tribal societies, and childhood fairytales. Through her artwork she gives fictional character life. She makes fictional desires into reality. How amazing, am I right?! Let’s go ahead and look at some of the work Samaras has done.

    Here at Prints on Wood we were lucky enough to work with Samaras on a first release for a limited print run of her painting, “Young Ferdinand”. This print was actually debuted at the Storybook exhibition at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. The artwork itself was inspired by the children’s storybook, “The Story of Ferdinand” written by Munro Leaf. Unfortunately this lovely print was limited edition and is now sold out on POW. But don’t fret because we recently had the opportunity to work with Samaras once again on another great print.

    Now introducing.. “Planet of the Drapes”! This fun, saucy portrait by Samaras brings to life Dr.Zira from “Planet of the Apes” in an extremely stylish way! This portrait is an amazing to honor and reminisce the character who has been a part of the films since 1968.

    Don’t miss out on the chance to own your very own Samaras piece! We have them available on our site now. The print is produced at its actual size to ensure that every detail will be noticed. Not to mention, every print is signed by Samaras herself!

    The Dark Side - Matt Gondek

    As mentioned in the Video, Matt Gondek collaborated with POW on Bootleg Pop, and his massive, Rancor sized Darth Vader print, The Dark Side. While Bootleg Pop has been long sold out, The Dark Side is still available in the POW shop... probably not for long being how it's limited to an edition of 1!
