Spring 2010 Abztract Print Releases

Abztract has teamed up with four very talented artists for the 2010 Spring Limited Edition print releases. All prints are signed and numbered editions and are available for purchase as of today on our shop at www.abztract.com

PaperMonster is a stencil graffiti artist whose vivid and intricate pieces explore the beauty behind the eyes and facial expressions of women.
Born in Puerto Rico, PaperMonster incorporates stencil and pasting techniques to create pieces of art on any surface by incorporating pop culture icons, Asian typography, patterns and texture to present vibrant emotions and stories.
Now, Abztract and PaperMonster joined together to release this 18 X 24, 4-color Limited Edition signed and numbered print title "True Identity". The print is an edition run of 50 and is available for $45.00 at our online shop starting today at abztract.com.

A child of the 80s, Chris' world was often completely flooded with the imagery and ideas presented by his television, his comic books, and the music and movies of the time. Immersed in these various mediums, Chris began to store the images brought forward though these everyday experiences in what he refers to as a "mental journal".
Today, Abztract and Chris of Robots Will Kill are releasing this limited edition 2-color print to share this "mental journal" with collectors.
Titled "Dio De Las Robots" and at 18 X 24, this print is limited to a run of 50, signed and numbered. It can be purchased on our online shop at for $45 starting today.

Earlier this year, Abztract announced the release of Floating Carnival, an exclusive limited edition print in a collaboration with featured artist JMR. A Brooklyn native, JMR has been inspired by his upbringing in the urban city and expressed with paintings of tangled, swooping, and jutting lines, which combine into unexpected shapes of vivid colors.
This 18 X 24 signed and numbered edition of only 40 comes screenprinted by hand (yep, no machine. Each individually pulled by hand) in four colors on 90 lb (250 gsm) Stonehenge paper.
The JMR "Floating Carnival" limited edition print can be purchased exclusively online at the Abztract shop for the price of $50. We still have a few in stock of this very special collaboration print.

Lumbang and Abztract have teamed up to release "The Mural" Limited Edition print with 75% of proceeds to help the local community while doing so. This 18 x 24 three-color screen print was created by Lumbang, who used one of the most recent photos taken of a mural he painted (which has recently come under a lot of attention after it was ordered by the city of Los Angeles to be removed after a single complaint from a local neighbor).
The print is on 100lb archival paper and is an edition of only 100 prints total. Partial proceeds from the sales of this print will go to Room 13 Foshay, a Los Angeles nonprofit that provides mentoring and education programs to inner-city youth with a passion for arts.
The print can be purchased on our site for $50 with only very few left in stock.
