2016 Gift Print Artist Don Ed Hardy


Honolulu Printmakers is pleased to announce that our 2016 Gift Print Artist is Don Ed Hardy, who is well known as a highly influential tattoo artist, and who was instrumental in bringing about the vibrant and diverse contemporary tattoo scene. Hardy, a Honolulu resident since 1986, also has deep roots in print culture, earning his BFA in printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1967, and since the early nineties he has been actively producing prints and editions with master printers and publishers such as Trillium Graphics, Shark’s Ink, and Mullowney Printing. 

Since 1928 Honolulu Printmakers has commissioned an artist to produce an edition that the organization may sell to its members and the public to raise funds for its activities. The print is available, sight unseen, for a special presale price of $85, with members getting a discount and paying $60. After the print is unveiled at our annual exhibition on February 24, 2016, the price will rise to $100 for all.

The 2016 Gift Print is a two color direct gravure hand-printed at Mullowney Printing in San Francisco, California. The edition is limited to 75 impressions.
