Looking for Gold!

I spend my Saturday morning deep down in Neukölln looking for …GOLD! Yes, that’s right, together with Dominik Ziller and Ollie, the printer, we went on an alchemistic search for the right tone and transparency of the Gold color, that we’ll use for our special edition screenprints of a graphic from Der Fliegende Proletarier. It wasn’t an easy task as Gold covers up all underlying colors most of the times, and we were looking for some kind of transparency. …And we found it! The prints will look really cool 🙂

Wladimir Majakowksi

Hey ho, exciting day today! We, Andrea Schmitt, Dominik Ziller, Johannes Frank and me drove to Köthen, a small town close to Dessau to see the proof printing of the first Majakowski-pages in progress.
