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.

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.

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.
