Clearly the Andy Warhol style is preferred and the most easy to use, but
other unique styles are also of interest including caricatures. This project
has now been running for 9 years and over 70% of the posters that have sold
very well are variations of the Warhol Art Style.
Graphic, charcoal, crayon, pastels, pencil and ink portraits are also of
interest. As are acrylic and oil portraits but the end product is posters.
Original art may be bought for Israeli Art Museums but this is secondary to
the primary objective of turning a portrait into a poster…The print run
for the Icon series is 8,000 with commission of $1.00 per copy per digitally
signed copies which will then be numbered and embossed by hand and $2.50 for
copies signed by the artist. Up to 1000 copies will be signed by hand by the
artist in London. (at our expense entirely) All printing in London is
audited by a Big Four Auditor ( E & Y) . Payment in full and immediate is
made when the print run is completed and the hand signing of the posters is
completed. We expect at least 16 different posters from each artist in more
or less the same style and background themes..
If your style of art is original and you are interested in trying the
portrait in it. I would be more than happy to consider your portrait style
for current and future commissions.
The 4 Icon Series are
1. Jewish and Zionist Icons ( the main series) anyone who has appeared on an
