Grafica su cartone martellato a mano - Firmato su lastra - Aperto

Two large-sized offset graphics on handmade hammered carton

The art work shows a cunstructional drawing for the 'over the river' project which was unfortunately never realized due to politcal challanges in the US earlier in 2017.


Over the River: 50 x 70 cm
Over the River 81 x 65 cm

With one dramatic no, a major artist has just escalated the culture world’s war against Donald J. Trump.

For more than 20 years, the artist Christo has worked tirelessly and spent $15 million of his own money to create a vast public artwork in Colorado that would draw thousands of tourists and rival the ambition of “The Gates,” the saffron transformation of Central Park that made him and Jeanne-Claude, his collaborator and wife, two of the most talked-about artists of their generation.

But Christo said this week that he had decided to walk away from the Colorado project — a silvery canopy suspended temporarily over 42 miles of the Arkansas River — because the terrain, federally owned, has a new landlord he refuses to have anything to do with: President Trump.

The two works were published at Kunstverlag Schuhmacher GmbH Fils, DÜsseldorf.

The art works are ready for international shippment with UPS and are also available for self collection in Berlin, Germany.
