KMNDZ X MODERNMULTIPLES: “GRENADE WREN”

the NARRATIVE: INTRODUCED TO US BY GERMS WHILE CREATING A 7-ARTIST BOX SET CALLED “24/7/365, ART NEVER SLEEPS”, JOHNNY “KMNDZ” RODRIGUEZ WAS IMMEDIATELY A FRIEND AND ARTISTIC CO-CONSPIRATOR. HE APPRECIATED THE LEGACY OF ‘HAND PAINTED MULTIPLES’, OR ‘HPMS’, THAT THE LATE RICHARD DUARDO CREATED ALONG WITH THE HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS HE COLLABORATED WITH. EVER SINCE, KMNDZ HAS WANTED TO COLLABORATE WITH US ON A LARGE FORMAT HPM, AND VICE VERSA! WELL, WE DID IT! IT’S DONE AND READY TO MAKE IT’S WAY INTO THE WORLD!

the PROCESS: KMNDZ CHOSE “GRENADE WREN”, A PAINTING ALREADY OWNED BY A COLLECTOR, TO BE THE INSPIRATION FOR A NEW, ORGANIC, COLLABORATIVE EDITION OF UNIQUELY PAINTED WORKS ON PAPER. THE IMAGE WAS BLOWN UP TO IT’S ULTIMATE SIZE, 40”x40”, AND PRINTED DIGITALLY. THAT MAQUETTE WAS USED BY OUR MASTERFUL TEAM TO CREATE 16 HAND PAINTED SEPARATIONS! WE DIDNT HOLD BACK. AND HE TRUSTED US TO ORGANICALLY RECREATE HIS PAINTING. EVERY SINGLE LAYER WAS CREATED AFTER THE PREVIOUS LAYER HAD BEEN PRINTED. ONE LAYER IN THE GRASS WAS EVEN HAND PAINTED ON MYLAR BY KMNDZ AND MONOPRINTED WITH 3 DIFFERENT GREENS TO CREATE VARIATIONS IN THAT SPECIFIC LAYER FROM ONE TO THE NEXT.

the PAINTING: WITH OVER 30 HOURS HAND PAINTING ON THE WRENS’ EYES, BEAKS, & FEATHERS, THE MULTICOLORED GRASS NESTS, AND THE WASHES OF MOSS ON THE GRENADES, THE STACK OF SERIGRAPHS BECAME INCRESINGLY UNIQUE FROM ONE TO THE NEXT. EACH WREN TOOK ON ITS’ OWN EMOTIONS. EACH BACKGROUND WAS BLASTED WITH THE FINAL RED, PAINTED FREELY WITH A FAT 10” BRUSH. “THIS LAYER IS INSPIRED BY RICHARD DUARDO”, KMNDZ SAID. “HE KNEW HOW TO MOVE QUICKLY, NOT OVER THINK IT, AND MOST OF ALL HAVE FUN.” AND NOW, FROM OUR COMBINED CREATIVE EFFORTS, WE PRESENT…
