A collaboration between Ayako Rokkaku and Avant Arte gives collectors the chance to take a leap of faith with a unique timed edition.
Ayako Rokkaku is one of Japan’s foremost contemporary artists. Her canvases – vibrant, dreamlike and emotionally-charged – exude freedom.
As Rokkaku paints live in London, a print edition based on the work she creates will be available to order. When the painting is finished, the timed edition will continue until the 24 hour release window ends. Edition size will be determined by the total number of orders received in this time.
In the days that follow, Rokkaku will work with printmakers to translate her painting into a hybrid print combining UV-cured ink with glossy silkscreen varnish. Once perfected, the edition will be printed, stamped and shipped to collectors worldwide. This will be Rokkaku’s first print with stamped authentication. Previously, her signature stamp has only appeared on original works.
