Michael Knigin

Photomontage on Paper or Canvas

  Available in sizes up to wall murals

Between 1978 and 1982, Michael Knigen created a series of 50 paintings and prints inspired by the works of Japanese woodblock artists. His photographs of the city skyline, subways, street corners and urban scenes (in contrast to the colorful Japanese works) were printed directly onto a special photographic linen, a technique he pioneered; he then hand painted his interpretations of Japanese images to the foreground in acrylic and enamel paint. The Japanese Suite sold out. We have one of those originals under paintings. Japan Society featured his work on the cover of their annual three years. He maintains a select few Artists Proofs at his studio. Limited edition lithographs hand drawn by the artist are still be be found on the secondary market.

36 years later, he has returned to the theme with even more dramatic effect, now using the computer and the latest digital technology to produce in his studio these limited edition prints.

WE HAVE SOLD OUT OUR ENTIRE STOCK, but many are still available at the estate site.
