‘’Cartoon Stone’’ is a series of lithographs on stone by the American artist RETNA, our seventh collaboration with the artist. This collection includes 17 different variations of colors, each variant is an edition of 12.

 

In continuation of his brimstone character and series of abstract expressionism and figurative portraits, RETNA is coming back with ‘’Cartoon Stone’’, which can be seen as a representation of himself, almost like an alter ego, in this series, the artist explores this character in different colors, expressing various emotions. Echoing the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of his main sources of inspiration, this work combines elements of graffiti and fine art with the use of drawing to achieve an overall abstract composition.

Retna

Los Angeles-based artist RETNA accesses spaces between text-based imagery and abstract emotive states with his mysterious lines of verse. Each block of text is a sophisticated system of hieroglyphs, calligraphy and illuminated script. With influences from Arabic, Egyptian, Hebrew, Anglo-Saxon (or Old English) and Native American typographies, RETNA’s distinctive language communicates a personal form of poetry. RETNA’s messages are masked in ciphers: words and meanings that are never immediately revealed, nor capable of being accurately translated. He employs ancient totemic symbologies as a baseline, overlaid with beats from the urban jungle (sourced from his background in Los Angeles, born from Pipil – western indigenous El Salvadorian – Cherokee, Spaniard, and African-American bloodlines. These diverse subcultures are channeled into his work, often accompanied (either in the studio or on the street) by a stream of ambient or musical sounds. It is this multi-sensory experience that is brushed onto the surface for RETNA: a synthesis of auditory and visual content, spontaneously manifested.
