“Reclusive art star and loyal MoCA supporter Mark Ryden has just released his most unusual and expensive print to date in an effort to raise funds for the financially struggling LA art institution. Titled “Silence,” and echoing the visual style of traditional Eastern landscape painting, the 24″x 18,” eleven-color fine serigraph is a perfect reproduction of a new Ryden painting created especially for this exclusive print. Meticulously crafted by the fine print-makers at pressure printing using carefully dyed and aged handmade paper from Bhutan “Silence” is embossed with a beautifully hand-sculpted bee and printer’s chop. The edition of 50 framed pieces is numbered and signed by Mark Ryden and includes a certificate of authenticity. Available for $6,000 per print with all proceeds directly benefiting MoCA, the piece can be obtained only by contacting MoCA support programs manager Michelle Bernardin at 213-633-5318, or mbernardin@moca.org.
