As the name suggests flatstock is anything that can be printed and is flat.
We have printed for MySpace New Zealand, fine artists such as Matt Moriarty, Adam Wheatley, and Tony Rush, bands including The Hives, Beastwars, Throwing Muses, Camp a Low Hum, and our own series of fine art prints.
We are exclusively using new inks that are free of solvents and ocean destroying phthalate plastics.
On November 14th, 2016 at 12:02pm a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Kaikoura leaving hundreds of tourists and residents stranded without water, food and shelter. The humility shown by the local and wider community was inspirational. Without hesitation the Takahanga Marae opened its arms to those most in need, inspiring a wave of response from the greater community.
Wellington screen-printer Tom Lynch of Artisan Screen Prints has a long-standing friendship and working relationship with local Kaikoura artist Matt Moriarty. Together they have produced a limited edition screenprint for Kaikoura to fund-raise for the Takahanga Marae Charitable Trust. Together they managed to raise more than $5,000 for the charity.
For more examples of our flatstock printing see this video of an art show put on by Artisan Screen Prints featuring 7 New Zealand Artists each designing a pair of works based on one of the 7 deadly sins and its opposite Heavenly virtue. Available for sale from the gallery at Shelly Bay:
