"The Android - Fascimiles"


The Series works as a Hand Painted Limited Edition Series of 4, where the next version of the Art Work is painted on light table from the previous version print.

This how the whole Limited Edition of 4 Artworks are not only individuals and handmade, but the series is ever changing and alive.


Media: Hand drawn and painted with ink on hand made Nepalese papers (I use a range of Nepalese Papers hence the change in look). The works are designed for Light Boxes.

Size: 29.7 x 42.0cm


Artist Proof Versions: An "Artist Proof" version is made from the Fascimile NO2. The "AP" version is at a Private Collection in Indonesia.

Making of Androids. RAW images and development photos

1 -  The original images were shot over few nights using the iMac Photobooth.

2 -  Basic compositions were arranged in Photoshop and then printed out.

3 -  The free hand drawings were designed over the composition scans through tracing paper (not for sale/display).

4 -  The traced images were scanned alone and transferred back to Photos….

5 -  The final designs were made from original compositions and traced and scanned free hand designs mixed with digital drawing and endless hours of altering and painting the images.

6 -  The different series "Dreams" "Light" "Goddes" "Fascimiles" are what resulted in the experiment.
