Exclusive HERT limited edition screenprint release

Ray Mock

Carnage NYC is proud to announce the release of a unique edition of screenprints by artist Ian de Beer.

In September of 2010, Ian de Beer, aka HERT, was sentenced to 1-3 years in state penitentiary for graffiti. Regarded by many of his peers as one of the most talented young artists emerging on the East Coast, he now faced severe restrictions. After a year in prison he was moved first to a half-way house and is currently still confined to his hometown in Western New York State. His artistic interests have broadened considerably in recent years, but de Beer’s transition to a professional art career is facing serious hurdles: Under the condition of his parole, de Beer is not allowed to use a wide variety of art materials, including paint and any type of marker or pen, even to create works on paper or canvas.

In order to create this print without these essential tools, de Beer decided to incorporate these restrictions into the artistic process. He manipulated the imagery digitally and commissioned an external printer. Rather than signing the prints in a conventional manner, de Beer chose to tell the story of his arrest with his finger-prints and had a pint of his own blood extracted to use in place of ink. De Beer thus re-focuses the viewer’s attention from the banality of arrest procedures to the existential threat of suffocating restrictions that aim not to reform but solely to punish.

Two-color screenprint and blood on heavy watercolor paper. 18” by 24”. Edition of 50 plus 3 APs. Available via carnagenyc.com on Tuesday, July 22 at noon ET.

Grilled III is the ultimate NYC doors zine, featuring 126 doors on 92 pages. If you have written your name on a door in the city in the last couple of years, there’s a pretty good chance it’s in here. We pulled out all the stops for this issue: We shot and re-shot over three hundred doors and edited down the material to only the best and most representative samples of grimey, stylish New York graffiti.

Edition of 600 numbered copies, 92 pages, full color, large format, perfect bound.

Now available in the store!

In order to celebrate the release of Grilled III, we also teamed up with Now You're Cool to produce an insane 11-color screenprinted shirt featuring some of our favorite ragged NYC doors. Check out a preview below and grab one now in the store for your summer in the city!

Ray Mock

4/19 Update: Giving away this blackbook turns out to be more complicated than we anticipated, but we will not rest until we have found a new home for it. Since we still don't have a winner, we're going to make this simple. Here are the new rules:

1) Take a photo of the back page of your copy of issue six and post it on IG. The number must be clearly visible. You must have purchased your copy.

2) @carnagenyc and @lions_nyc

3) #lionsblackbook

The deadline is 4/25 at noon ET in order to allow time for folks who haven't received their physical copy yet. We will do a random draw from the entries we have received by then. Good luck!
