Blackstone and Bluestone are the first exclusives prints editions of Retna Brimstone character, which can be seen as a representation of himself, almost like an alter ego. With these two lithographs editions, Retna breaks the codes of his usual calligraphic style and takes us to a completely new universe, as we cannot find any of his signature specialized normally in lettering.
Blackstone is an exclusive limited edition of 12 lithographs on stone.
The particularity of these lithographs is that they have been created on stone, a printmaking technique where the artist directly paints or draws onto a flat stone to create an art piece. The process involves painting or drawing the stone with a greasy substance, which will absorb the oil-based ink that will be rolled on it. Then, a piece of paper is pressed into the stone to let the ink to be transferred from the stone to the paper, creating the image.
