Eddie Colla – “BLNT” Limtited edition boxes and originals at 1xrun.com

I am releasing a new edition at 1xrun.com this coming Tuesday July 22nd at 9am PST. “BLNT” is an edition of 35 wood cradled boxes 10×20 inches. The boxes are treated with and iron based reactive paint and screen printed. After the screen printing is done they are put through a chemical process to rust them.BLNT-2upAngle-2SQ

Each box has an individual brass plate with the title and edition number engraved in it. Each plate goes through and acid bath to crate a unique patina on the brass. Stamp-and-Plate-2 Back

The Back of each piece is has my logo burnt into it with a branding iron and there is also a small note that gives some context to the piece.Detail-SqDue to the organic nature of the rust the pieces vary quite a bit and no 2 are the same. This edition is definitely the most elaborate edition I have done. There are about 9 different processes to go through with the various elements before they are completed. 20140620_120817 20140628_165736 20140701_163750 20140702_142104 20140702_171418 20140702_172908 20140620_120823In Addition to the editioned boxes there are 3 originals that will also go on sale with this drop.

Primus Spring Poster Series and Eddie Colla

So I got a call from Zoltron, actually you don’t really get calls from Zoltron. So I get a call from a guy  who sounds like John Forsythe on Zoltron’s behalf. He asks me to be part of The Primus Spring Poster Series along with
Bask
Justin Hampton
123 Klan
Travis Louie
Reuben Rude
Todd Slater
Jeff Soto
Zoltron

And a whole bunch of other heavies.  They asked me to do the poster for the Missoula Montana Show At the Wilma theatre. I wanted to do something special that really expressed how I feel about Montana, so I did an image of Hong Kong.

Here’s the poster, Which goes on sale HERE at 9am on May 14th

There’s also a Hand embellished variant of 5 available HERE

Another brilliant project from the darkness of Zoltron’s mind.

Air Kowloon Limited edition wood boxes and prints

Air-Kowloon-Print-2.2

 

I have new “Air Kowloon” multiples dropping on monday March 25th @ 1xrun.com. There are 2 editions available, A hand embellished, collaged and distressed wooden box and a limited edition Print.

The boxes are birch wooden boxes 12×18 x 1.75 deep. They are all unique. Individually collaged and embellished there are 25 available. These were pretty time consuming to make. Each box is collaged with an archival glue and sealed with acrylic. The base is then painted with a shellac based paint and the image is sealed face down onto the box. The next step is to remove all of the paper from the original prints until the only thing remaining is the pigment. The bowes are then embellished again with an amber shellac and sanded and distressed and finally sealed with acrylic.

“Radio Yau Ma Tei” Print release @ 1xrun.com

Radio Yau Ma Tei is my newest that I created specifically for release at 1xrunImage. After talking with Jesse at 1xrun we decide we wanted to do something different from a typical limited edition. These print started out as giclees on 300lb acid free water color paper. After that there were really embellished in a lot of different ways. Every print was drawn on with pencils, markers and mop pens and part of the image were overpainted with acrylics. They were then tea stained and airbrushed in 6 different colors. At this point the prints were distressed using sandpaper and steel wool and the text was screen printed onto the image. The test roughly translates as “I have a name but it doesn’t matter”

In addition to the 20 embellished prints there were an additional 3 prints made with the text gold leafed in 22kt gold. This print will be released on 1xrun.com on April 25th. You can see it here

Eddie Colla X Sierra Magazine

Last month I did the artwork for the cover of this Month’s Sierra Magazine. This was really an ideal situation. It’s a rare opportunity to get to work with a group as important as the Sierra Club. I also had the freedom to simply take this project and do what I do. Really, it was an ideal working environment. It’s always satisfying to be able to do your art while contributing to something you truly support. Some of you from San Francisco’s art community may recognize the model I used for the cover.
