New Prints in Stock Today

After our busiest ever Xmas I have finally got some cataloging time to process some of the dozens of new prints that have arrived at our warehouse over the past few weeks.  It has been all hands to the deck to get prints shipped around New Zealand and the world in time for Christmas day.

Summary of new prints added today.

Queen with Moko Print

One of our prints - Queen with Moko by Barry Ross Smith has hit the national news via the Manawatu Standard's article that has been picked up - the main news website for Fairfax media. Over 60 comments on the article already - mostly positive so far.  We'll see where this goes...

Very special limited edition print from Otis Frizzell

After a much longer than expected journey from Wellington thanks to CourierPost I have finally been able to catalogue this morning a much anticipated print from one of our favourite contemporary artists, Otis Frizzell. This large and colourful print is both an exciting visual treat and an opportunity to raise money for our disaster relief in Samoa following the devastating Tsunami early this year.

In October 2009 Otis Frizzell (pictured left) was commissioned to complete an artwork to capture the generosity and response of donors to the New Zealand Red Cross Samoa Tsunami Relief Fund with the encouragement of New Zealand’s online giving website

The large mural, entitled "God Bless Samoa", was created by Otis in the foyer of Wellington's Te Papa over four days with members of the public watching the progress unfold. The resulting 8m by 2m artwork will be gifted to the people of Samoa once a suitable home is found. To keep a slice of this unique work in New Zealand a very small run of limited edition prints are now available with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the New Zealand Red Cross Samoa Tsunami Relief Fund. New Zealand Fine Prints are also donating all credit card transaction fees to ensure that the Red Cross Samoa Tsunami Relief Fund gets the full amount from each sale.
