Art by Børge Bredenbekk
Fun with risos
Back in the days risoprints was where I started making art. Its a great low cost charming reproduction of one colored artowork. Much like screen printing colors one by one and can be overplayed. I use munken cream or rough paper 240g and most motives are 30x40cm restricted by the machine. I appreciate this technique and the opportunity to make prints cheap an available to all. Thats why I have included a 3 for 2 deal on all risoprints. Automatic when added to cart: Have a browse!
I´m contributing to Finarts summer exhibition in oslo with 5 originals (July). I have a solo show in Porsgrunn aug sept, and in Stavanger Skur2 week 44, and a solo in Galleri Geo (Bergen) in November. Next year I have a solo in Risør May to June and a solo in Galleri Nyhuus (telemark) June July. Please get in touch if you want to see anything live!.
Shipping & Frames
FREE shipping on all orders over 500 NOK and no extra tax at check out. I pack and ship within a week but use normal postal service so it can take up to several weeks depending on where you are. In some countries you may have to pay tax upon arrival. My digital prints are printed on demand and sometimes it can take a bit longer.
Standard Frames can be found for all my prints (apart from 90x90, 150x50, 100x53) at BGA fotobutikk. Do not hesistate to contact me for frame recommendations.
A lot of my prints are drawn inverted in charcoal and oil based pencils. Then the drawings are photographed, inverted and retouched in Photoshop before printing as high quality art prints. A lot of my drawn prints are made using this technique. Original drawings are also drawn in charcoal and oil based pencil on cotton paper. Graphic works are sketched by hand, then drawn on an iPad, treated on computer and then printed.
Most of my graphic art is Screen Printed, hand pulled then signed and numbered. I also make hand carved and printed linoprints on cotton paper, these will vary in color density and detail. Riso prints are printed on an old machine and each print may vary slightly from the online presentation. Some graphic art is also letterpress print on an old Heidelberger press. My drawn art is reproduced as high quality digital prints on Hahnemühle 270g paper. Most of these are in larger editions and they are color correct and will not fade. Some are also open editions. That means there are no specific number sold and they are not numbered.
I also make commissioned work through my agent. Over the last 15 years I have worked with many different clients, both large and small. Check out my commercial portfolio at ByHands homepage if you are interested.
