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 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. . .”
