Mark Ryden’s carnival of curiosities

Fuzzy bunnies, big-eyed girls, meat, magic, and mystery

Limited to 50 copies, this eight-color fine serigraph is a perfect reproduction of an original Mark Ryden painting made especially for TASCHEN. The print was meticulously crafted by the fine print-makers at Pressure Printing. It is printed on finely handmade paper from Bhutan, and carefully dyed and aged; the work is embossed with a beautifully hand-sculpted bee and printer’s chop. The edition is numbered, signed by Mark Ryden and available only with the first 50 copies of the book Pinxit, published by TASCHEN. Includes certificate of authenticity signed by Mark Ryden.

Mark Ryden received a BFA in 1987 from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, including a retrospective Wondertoonel at the Frye Museum of Art in Seattle and Pasadena Museum of California Art, and in the exhibition The Artist’s Museum at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
