Chad Kevenyis creating Silkscreen prints from my travels
Select a membership level
Every three months you'll get three portraits from my travels. These images are produced using a screenprinting technique that allows me to reproduce the sketches with the colours that I mix up myself.
The signed and numbered prints (editions of 10) are 30 x 40cm. This way, you can use the same frame.
The bridge links my travels, it’s encounters and the models for these prints here in Latin America with the public, I grew up with and the people who have made me who I am back in Europe. The first paintings of the people in Latin America are from Albert Eckhout who produced portraits male and female Tapuyas, Africans and Mullatos in the Dutch Brazil. This was an ethnographic exercise that sought to organise the new world. This series of portraits are inspired by individuals and the images I produce question our understanding of the other, in terms of ethnicity, gender, beauty and exotic. It’s a visual exploration of who we are or could be.
I have no idea where this will lead but I would love to have you on board.
