The Estate of Richard Saul Duardo,

L’Atelier Printing, and

Modern Multiples

are proud to present a…

“We’re making a case for art,” said Fly Tucker of L’Atelier Printing as he proposed this project to the Estate of RSD. L’Atelier Printing has already published 3 artists (Van Arno, Anthony Ausgang, and Germizm) making this the fourth box and FIRST time a deceased artist’s works will be available in this collectable format!

The “Little Box of Art” features…

  • An 8.5″ x 8.5″ x 1.75″ wooden Gift Box containing…
  • 15 archival pigment prints, approx. 7″ x 7″,  of Richard Duardo artwork spanning nearly 3 decades,
  • A Legend with all 15 artworks’ titles and year,
  • A Certificate of Authenticity embossed with both Modern Multiples’ and L’Atelier’s chops,
  • Hand-pulled, screen printed box decals front and back,
  • Hand-crafted interiors, and
  • An embossed Edition number “RSD 001”-“RSD 200” on the side of the box notating the limited edition of 200!

 

Modern Multiples – the living legacy of master printmaker Richard Duardo – IS STILL PRINTING and has decided to co-publish this edition by producing the archival prints in-house. Approximately 7″ x 7″, the artwork inside is printed with Ultrachrome HD inks on 100% rag, acid-free paper. The colors and quality of these prints are begging to be in a mini frame! You can rotate out your favorite one whenever you please!

Frank Romero’s Famous Again!

Modern Multiples and its crew would like to formally congratulate artist, legend, partner and friend Frank Romero for his continued success and recent peak in renown as he celebrates his life work in several locations with concurrent shows “Dreamland” at MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art), “Soñando en East Los” at CalState LA’s Fine Art Gallery and “Soñando en Califas” at Eastern Projects in Chinatown’s Blossom Plaza.

 

DREAMLAND @ MOLAA:

It was a real pleasure to see an LA Chicano artist in MOLAA. Modern Multiples team Lisa Duardo and Montana Mills get an early bird hello in with Romero outside MOLAA by the car show at the Opening Reception on Saturday Feb. 11th, 2017.

Show on exhibition until May 21st. Get your tickets here.

SOÑANDO en EAST LOS @ CSULA FINE ART GALLERY:csula romero opening

 

los4 at csula whittier blvd st csulaCSULA Fine Art Gallery, which recently hosted Modern Multiples’ own “Richard Duardo: Artist and Master Printmaker” in October 2016, now houses a concurrent show of works on paper for Frank Romero. In fact, Romero has produced a lot of limited editions in his life and many were thanks to the many studios Richard Duardo owned and operated. For example, “The Closing of Whittier Boulevard” to the left was printed by Aztlan Multiples, one of Modern Multiples’ predecessors.

This show is still open as well until March 10th, 2017. Free to visit. View location and time availability here.

 

SOÑANDO en CALIFAS @ EASTERN PROJECTS:

frank romero easter projectsLastly, a wonderful show that’s already come down, “Soñando en Califas” at Eastern Projects in Chinatown’s Blossom Plaza was a timely show for Romero which preceded the openings at MOLAA and CSULA. The mere fact that Frank had enough artwork to fill Eastern Projects while so much of his body of work was already curated into a museum and a university’s fine art gallery is stunning. His life’s work is a rooted, vibrant depiction of the Los Angeles Chicano experience.

Don’t miss out on attending the retrospectives still on display! He’s surely in another iteration of fame! In his own words, “I’ve been around so long I’ve been famous six times.” Think this makes 7, Frank! Congratulations.


Much of Frank Romero’s limited edition works created at Modern Multiples are available to collect through the Modern Multiples Shop! Take a look and collect yourself a Frank Romero today!

“PHISH” March 6,7,8 2009 Hampton Coliseum, Virginia Authenticity

Statement of Provenance:

Re: March 6,7,8 2009 Hampton Coliseum, Virginia (3 Colorways)

In January 2009, an order for a few thousand screen printed Phish posters came to Modern Multiples. Modern Multiples hired out a third party screen printer, Superb Graphics, to help fill the order. Since Modern Multiples remained an active party in the creation of this print, Modern Multiples retained several APs (artist proofs) in it’s inventory.

phish_hampton_ALL

Also, there exist two chops authenticating the prints. “PHISH”, in the shape of a fish, and “House” are both embossed on the bottom right hand corner.

phish chop

The 3 colorways being sold currently on 1xRun and our Modern Multiples shop are, in fact, authentic prints from the same print run in 2009.

Happy collecting!

A thank you to all the artists that participated in this Modern Multiples Publishing project titled “24/7/365 – Art Never Sleeps”. It yielded an incredible box set and look how amazing it all looks framed and on display!

Community!

Modern Multiples was very proud to host this event that attracted a great community brought together by art! Not only do we want to acknowledge our friends and patrons who showed up on Saturday, but we want to acknowledge the space as the hub of community that it is. We had everyone from our new hot sauce-slangin’ friends at El Machete to our local elote lady Ana bringing the legit bacon-wrapped hot dogs and tacos to our family friend Zhi-Zhi selling girl scout cookies all being supported in the same room!
