And Sole is the name Malleus gave to a new project representing for them a new approach to poster art.
After years of silk screening, Malleus decided it was time to experiment with something different, for giving a new value to what they do. Malleus needed to see their prints pop out of paper, becoming something they can’t name simply a “poster”, to give the work they do a new strength.
Sole is the first gilded silkscreen print from Malleus.
“SOLE” is a limited edition art print taken from the original gigposter they did for their friends Orange Factory. Originally created for a gig of Mugstar in Belgium.
Malleus worked out a regular version hand pulled silkscreen of 40 copies and a variant version of only 15 copies using gold metal leaf gilding process. The regular version is 4 colors on red paper.
Then they printed 15 copies on a darker red paper and they used gold metal leaf on them.
It’s been a very long process, every poster has been totally handmade, so they had to glue them with a small brush and put the foil on them and so on…
Both versions will be on sale on our store on the 2nd of march.
