J. Bannon "Destroyer of Worlds: Moenkopi Unryu" Print
"Destroyer of Worlds" is my mixed media interpretation of Godzilla "The King of the Monsters" (ゴジラ, Gojira). The type on the right portion of the piece reads "I have become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds" in proper Japanese Kanji. The piece was originally created for the Holy Kaiju Art show at Holy Mountain Printing in Raleigh, NC. There were 3 originals made using a mix of ink, gouache, acrylic, and collage on mylar, later mounted to plywood.
Due to demand I've made a new run of these prints. New versions will be released randomly throughout 2020.
Moenkopi [moe-in-koe-pee] papers are made at the Awagami Factory in Tokushima, Japan. Literally translated as "cloud dragon paper", Moab Moenkopi Unryu paper is made by adding long course fibers to a wet layer of Kozo (mulberry) fiber on the mold. It is a highly decorative paper which is perfect for adding depth to a print. Please note it is VERY light and delicate. This version is limited to 20 prints only, all signed and numbered by myself.
