Originally painted in early 2015, ‘Five Towns’ is now available as a limited-edition run of 10 giclee prints.
Painted in Mike’s familiar style, using indian ink on cartridge, each of the five towns consists of a landscape and a detail element, the city centre of each. Painted at the same time as ‘Industry’, the piece marks an examination of world building techniques and fictitious landscapes.
Each print is signed and numbered by the artist.
The Meteo Geo Series is the latest set of mixed media prints by Mike Staines based on geological, geographical and meteorological textures and formations.
Created between November 2015 and February 2016, this series is offered as A3 and A4 archival prints, limited to a set of 10 per size per print, and numbered and signed by the artist.
