VENICE, CA: Blik, the innovative maker of self-adhesive surface graphics, is excited to bring the world of artist David Bray to the Blik line. These intricate pieces are as captivating as they are beautiful. Bray's compelling works come from a lifetime love of drawing and an active imagination. As a child, Bray would draw images of space travel and visits to other planets and universes. Once he moved to London in the 1970's, his interests shifted to exploring a dark, egotistical fantasy world. Bray has always been fascinated by nature documentaries and pushes his technical limitations by drawing a variety of subjects such as women and animals.
Bray talks about his experience working with Blik. He explains it is, "an exciting process, seeing my drawings transformed into multiples. The process remains a mystery to me, I think it should remain that way." He elaborates saying it's, "exciting in the fact that this collaboration means the drawings can literally be placed anywhere, there is no frame restricting them. I think they would look great on a wall with a couple of originals nearby. Ha!"
Blik Co-founder, Scott Flora, talks about the partnership with Bray. "We're thrilled to be working with such a talented artist. The level of detail in each piece is stunning. It's clear that Bray invests many hours into creating these sensual works." Flora continues to describe how, "the pieces are strong statements that deserve attention. They are the perfect way to transform a space."
"The Seven Punishments," "I Never Saw the Sign," and "Apollo" will be available online at Blik on September 16 for $95 each.
