UD Gallery Presents Hawkeye and Black Widow of The Avengers in Japanese Woodblock Prints
Posted On 04 Feb 2016 / 0 Comment
Upper Deck Gallery returns to Marvel themes but this time depicting your favorite Marvel superheroes like they’ve never been seen before. Kicking off a release of collectable, connectable artwork, both Hawkeye and Black Widow will be available as parts one and two of a six poster series depicting the Avengers in a unique, Japanese Woodblock presentation.
These 12x18 premium lithographs are unique additions to any comic art enthusiast’s collection and can be displayed as stand-alone art pieces for those interested in select characters or for fans of the Avengers, all six can be collected and displayed together to reveal a cohesive battle scene.
The Japanese Woodblock style blends with the traditional costume and weaponry of these well-known Marvel characters to create incredibly appealing and unique, alternate interpretations never before seen in the Marvel Universe.
“Mixing 17th century Japanese woodblock art with Marvel’s mightiest heroes, seemed like such an amazing opportunity to employ the unique design concepts of Ukiyo-e and the amazing kinetic energy influence of Jack Kirby,” said artist Marcelo Baez. “I’m amazed how naturally Japanese master artist styles like Hokusai and Kuniyoshi fuse with the dynamic Marvel universe.”
Created by illustrator Marcelo Baez, these limited edition posters are lithographed on heavy card stock and hand numbered to an edition of 250. Available at www.UpperDeckGallery.com for $29.99 while supplies last!
In this variant version of the colorful original, a sepia cast transforms the artwork into a versatile art piece that would blend with any décor. Subject and backdrop blend together seamlessly while conjuring a traditional Japanese look and feel. These limited edition Variant posters are lithographed on heavy card stock and hand numbered to an edition of 100. Available at www.UpperDeckGallery.com for $49.99 while supplies last! To complete your collection and reveal the scene, the remaining Avengers will be available later this year in two future releases – be sure to check back with Upper Deck Gallery on the first Thursday of every month to see what’s new!
Collectors can view the entire UD Gallery portfolio, including Wolverine Kuzuri, Avengers Origins, Gangs of New York, The Crow, Spiderman and more at www.UpperDeckGallery.com.
