Happy Birthday Richard! Maestro!
(May 15, 1952 – November 11, 2014)
If you haven’t already, contact us to receive the Pre-Release email for the Large Format HPM of Johnny KMNDZ’s “Grenade Wren”!
Signing of both editions will be this coming Thursday and anyone who owns one by then will be gifted a small format print and invited to Modern Multiples to hang with the artist and print team during the signing!
Final touches to KMNDZ’s “Grenade Wren” have been completed, all we are waiting for now are signatures from the artist himself.
“But it’s just a print, right?”
HARDLY! There are over 15 hand separated layers created by the Modern Multiples team based on an original painting by KMNDZ AND over 20 hours of painting by the artist himself!
This Hand Painted Multiple (HPM) edition has hand work and digital design, has transparent metallic inks is printed on 300g paper so heavy it might as well be canvas, and spawns from KMNDZ’s desire to organically collaborate on a print unlike any he ever has before with the late Richard Duardo’s Modern Multiples.
On our last day of painting, Johnny told us that “…this red layer is inspired by Richard. He knew how to move quick, not overthink, and most of all, have fun.”
Very excited to release this edition of only 20 towards the end of the month! DM to get on list for PRE-RELEASE price! In addition, KMNDZ Small Format Grenade Wren edition of 100 are about to be deckled for release on April 27th. $50.
The Art Brewery is back next week from April 6-7 at 11-6pm at 2100 North Main Street. We will be there among many other talented artists at the Jesus Wall Gallery! We will have a variety of prints for sale by artists such as Richard Duardo and John Van Hamersveld (sign up for our email list to get info in advance!) Go to the Art Brewery website here or the Facebook event page here. We hope to see you there!

“The Archive Box… BUST OPEN & FOR SALE:
This is your chance to own a piece of history! An archive box FULL of serigraphs printed by Richard Saul Duardo / Modern Multiples / Allied Artists / Future Perfect / Art & Commerce / Aztlan Multiples / Hecho en Aztlan — decades of Duardo publishing projects by dozens of artists — is here for your perusing and collecting pleasure. .
A major University was going to acquire this archive of work from the Estate of Richard Duardo. Somewhere along the way, they changed their minds. We won’t say who, only that they’re located somewhere near Stanford, CA. 😉 Their loss, your gain. .
Since this is such a massive amount of work from a large time period with several “last of”s, some information may be missing from certain pieces. Please DM for more information, pricing, or to arrange an in-person viewing. . .”
See you on Instagram!

The timing couldn’t be better either! Today, May 15th, 2017 would be Richard’s 65th Birthday. Happy Birthday, RSD.
“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!
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!
Congratulations to the first 99 people to come to Saturday’s Release Party. They got to take home a Poodle as a gift! Whether you’re ready to invest in your collection or still readying yourself for the plunge you’ll never look back from, Modern Multiples is dedicated to putting fine art multiples in your home!
“24/7/365 – Art Never Sleeps”
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!
Each artist brought their artistry, imagery and creativity to this project and it was a pleasure having each one of them in the studio creating. The artists are as follows.
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!
Sponsors & Entertainment
A big thank you goes out to our sponsored open mezcal bar to Edgar with Cheech Marin’s Tres Papalote Mezcal. Everyone got to try a taste of a delicious spirit. In fact, this Saturday at Ramirez Liquor, Cheech himself will be doing a signing with his Mezcal bottle. Don’t miss out!
The band rocked the house as Eloy Torrez strayed from his usual visual art to provide us live entertainment along with his band, Chiquis and Jose. Thank you guys!
DJ Sheak One also in the house keepin’ it moving all night!
