Jonas Wood: Aechmea Bromeliad Poster
Jonas Wood produced this vivid twenty-seven-color lithograph with Cirrus Editions in 2022. He was inspired by posters of plants found in Los Angeles nurseries, and each of the vibrant bromeliad cultivars in the print is individually drawn and labeled. As the artist explains, “I wanted the plants to have a loosely hand-drawn vibe inside a kind of hard-edge, computer-generated grid. I was looking at some Picasso prints and liked how the lithographic pencil came across a lot like Picasso’s line, so I was hoping to achieve something similar here.”
Sixty percent of the net proceeds from sales of this print will be donated to CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort), a crisis response organization that brings immediate relief and recovery to underserved communities across the globe, including in Ukraine, Haiti, India, Pakistan, and throughout the United States.
