Cryptik The Jewel In The Lotus Print Release Details

Cryptik, a Los Angeles based artist is back with 1xRUN today for an incredible release titled The Jewel In The Lotus.

"This print was inspired by a painting I did last year as part of the ongoing 'Mantra Mandala Series.' I recreated it using hand-painted color separations specifically for this release. This piece is part of a recent series that I've been exploring called the 'Mantra Mandalas,' where art can become a tool for meditation. These are printed on 100% cotton rag, using hand-painted color separations done in acrylic.

This is something I've been seeing in my mind, but I've always imagined the rings rotating like a Tibetan prayer wheel where each rotation is equivalent to reciting the mantra out loud. Hence, I decided to use the same mantra, OM MANI PADME HUM (the Jewel In the Lotus). Basically, this print is just a freeze frame of that vision." - Cryptik

This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Cryptik and 1xRUN.

The prints are 29.5 x 29.5 Inches 4-Color Serigraph on 290gsm Coventry Rag Fine Art Paper. These prints are printed at Serio Press by master printer Tony Clough.

There will be two editions the standard with a run of 70. Then the baller Gold Leaf edition that will have a run of only 20 and it will be 5 colors.
