Petrus Amuthenu Art

African, b. 1981
A master printmaker, Petrus Amuthenu also uses pencil, charcoal, spray-paint, tipex, oil paint, watercolour and printing ink, combined with a variety of different techniques to create his works. Amuthenu’s artworks draw on pop-culture and related motifs. A mix of urban and noticeably Namibian motifs, invites a local, young audience to relate and respond to his visual social commentary. Emanating from his background in printmaking, Amuthenu’s mark making is often highly detailed and dynamic and this translates into his paintings. His works can often be seen as murals all around Namibia as well as on paper and canvas. Petrus Amuthenu was born in Swakopmund and grew up in northern Namibia in Uukwaludhi. In 2002 a chance encounter with the late artist Samuel Mbingilo at the Katutura Community Art Centre gave Amuthenu his first introduction to the Namibian art world. In 2015, Amuthenu held his first solo exhibition ‘Urban style / Kasi style’ at the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC). The exhibition ‘Freeing My Mind’ followed at the National Art Gallery of Namibia in 2016. In 2017, the artist held his third solo exhibition ‘My Heritage’ at the FNCC. As well as his solo exhibitions, the artist has participated in various group shows locally and internationally. Collections: National Art Gallery of Namibia, Collection of the government of the Republic of Namibia, Museum Würth (Germany), Tulipamwe International Artists Workshop Collection (Namibia), Art Ceduna (Australia), European Union Delegation (Namibia), Private Collections: The Netherlands, Germany, Namibia, South Africa

Beautiful Bath , No. 23 1996 by Karl Gerich of Bath - Playing Card Proof Print
Located in Meinisberg, CH
Karl Alexander Gerich (English, 23.4.1956 - 4.1.2016) Beautiful Bath No. 23, 1996 - Etching - Sheet ca. 29.9 x 29.9 cm - No plate mark (trimmed sheet) Worldwide shipping for this object is complimentary - There are no additional charges for handling & delivery. This pack is said to be Karl’s declaration of Love to his chosen city of Bath. Each card narrates a part of Bath’s rich history. The court cards depict portraits of personalities – real and legendary – who shaped the city of Bath as it is today. Unfinished, proof print with depictions of the court cards of diamonds and clubs, but an empty cartouche where Karl himself will appear at a later state as the joker, playing mandolin. On one of the documenting photos you can see a photo copy of what the joker card would look like. Sheet is in good condition and suitable to be framed. Karl was a brilliant playing card maker and certainly one of the most genius artist-craftsmen I had the pleasure to learn about his work and know. He could do it all: Come up with the tale, weave meaning(s) into it, fill it with spirited characters of his liking, draw it, etch it, print it, colour it and handcraft the inks, paper and card into wondersome packs of playing cards, each of them living in their own, most exquisitely crafted boxes. Every pack a magical marvel, filled with the spirit of this genius card maker … All this he did using his Adana printing press, very simple hand tools and great skill. When Karl closed down his studio in St.Peter’s Terrace in Bath, England and moved to Poplar Close, he sold off work for which he felt he no longer wanted to be the custodian. So a number of prints reached the market then. Printed sheets by Karl Gerich...
