Brent Bond – Twister

Twister – Brent Bond

Artist and Master Printer Brent Bond was kind enough to allow Mesa Contemporary Arts to include this print in their 2011 Art Print Calendar. We were lucky enough to purchase this print at the Mesa Arts Center recently. And hang it on our walls.

Read the Phoenix New Times article about his work. He founded Santo Press in 2009. Be sure to read about that too. From the Santo Press website:

The studio revolves around a fully restored 1960 Vandercook Universal I printing press. Affectionately named Victoria, she was acquired on trade from the artist James Turrell, where he had stored her in a barn for the last 10 years.

Fun! Back to our new Twister print. We love it. It’s a tornado printed on a certificate, rendered with all the graphic energy of Thomas Hart Benton. Perfect. See more of Brent’s work here.
