One of the main reasons I wanted to start this website was to introduce more Gaeilge into the arenas where I felt it’s been lagging behind. Toni Morrison once wrote ‘If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it’, and I think the same sentiment can be used for so many other art forms. With that in mind, the brilliantly talented Gillian Henderson and I have created some cool, bilingual, contemporary prints. Gillian makes each print by hand in her studio in Dublin’s fair city.
Irish design is having a moment, ain’t no denying that. The last few years have shown that even if the sectors we thought were the most valuable and reliable fail, we have more than enough talent to keep us going in other areas. Out of a mutual love of contemporary design, beautiful print and cultural appreciation, As an NuaXGillian Prints was born.
The prints cost €45 each and can be posted nationwide. If you’d like one or have an idea for a nice turn of phrase, do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re planning on dropping a new one every month to keep things fresh. I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, you can follow Gillian Prints in the following places and she what other glorious projects she’s working on!
