Black Ink Series

A series of four large-scale, monochromatic limited edition prints by renowned artist, designer and long- standing Wrong Shop collaborator, Ronan Bouroullec. Made exclusively for The Wrong Shop.



Ronan Bouroullec has a distinct approach to creativity, transgressing the boundaries of art and design. In parallel to the extensive collaboration with his brother, he has become known for his independently produced artworks. Whilst the Bouroullecs’ designs involve a rigorous and complex process of research and testing, Ronan’s personal work offers no interferences, no plans. His drawings are instinctive, rather than intellectualised. It is his purest form of creation.

The impressive size of the artworks make them feel larger than life - as individual pieces, and when seen collectively. Digitally printed with archival ink on 310gms Canson Rag Photographic paper, each print comes in a limited edition of 25, with four artist proofs, signed and numbered by the artist. The prints are available unframed or framed. We are delighted to make available for the first time an elegant aluminium frame profile, selected by Ronan Bouroullec, suiting the artworks’ scale.

“Doing a drawing I totally lose myself,and I do not remember what happened...” - Ronan Bouroullec. 



 

 

Ronan Bouroullec

Ronan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) have been working together for almost 15 years. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence with the intention to reach more balance and fineness.

The Paris-based brothers design for numerous international manufacturers, namely Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Established and Sons, Ligne Roset, Axor, Alessi, Cappellini, Mattiazzi and more recently Flos and Mutina. At the same time, they maintain an experimental activity which is essential to the development of their work at Galerie kreo, Paris, where four exhibitions of their designs have been held between 2001 and 2012. Several exhibitions have been devoted to their work from the Design Museum in London in 2012, to the Museum of Contemporary Art MOCA in Los Angeles in 2004 to the Centre Pompidou Metz and the Vitra Design Museum in 2012. This year, a new comprehensive monographic book was released called Works, by Phaidon Press.
