Modern Art and Star Trek Fans Have Two New Posters to Add to Their Collections
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Austin, Texas – November 25, 2019 Bye Bye, Robot is announcing the launch of two new Star Trek fine art prints, by artists Chris Nielsen and Jonathan England, representing Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
We are excited to be adding two new artists to our roster of talent. The first new artist working with Bye Bye, Robot is Chris Nielsen, and he brings with him his detailed depiction of the U.S.S. Enterprise in space-doc, as seen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. This new artwork catches the view of the ship as if the viewer is aboard the shuttle standing beside Kirk and Scotty on their approach. This new piece is full of vibrant blue hues and angular lines. The contrasting values of color are a distinct characteristic of Nielsen’s artistic style, right alongside of his use of multiple solid tones of color contained within unique sharp shapes. Entitled “In Awe” this new print is 16”x24” on heavyweight acid-free card stock.
The second new artist in this release is Jonathan England, and he brings with him his classic portrait of Mr. Data and his cat Spot. This is a portrait that fans may already be familiar with, from its original limited release some years ago. This portrait combines the futuristic and the classical with its composition of Mr. Data seated in a red velvet chair in his quarters on the Enterprise holding Spot on his lap, all while in the style of a traditional oil portrait. Entitled “Ode to Spot” this new piece is 18”x24” on heavyweight acid-free card stock and presents imagery from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Charity Wood of Bye Bye, Robot mentions, “We are so thrilled to be bringing two new artists aboard with such beautiful original artwork. These new art pieces represent some of our most treasured moments in Star Trek, and we are delighted to be sharing them with all of you.”
Under license by CBS Consumer Products, each of the new art prints are printed on acid-free archival heavyweight cardstock and are available for $25 each. They are available in the U.S.A. for purchase, beginning today, from byebyerobot.com at the price listed above, plus shipping and tax where applicable.
