Ashkahn (real name: Ashkahn Shahparnia) is a local artist who attended Otis and creates everything from graphic design to patterns to products to screen prints, which is the subject of this post. Teaming up with Skylight, he created a bunch (ahem, 100) exclusive prints reading “READING SAVED MY LIFE.” The pieces are ironic and fun and reference Indeep’s hit “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life,” which is an amazing feat regardless.
As the Skylight site says “these won’t be around for long, get yours today” and they are completely right. We had no idea they existed until we were visiting the store this past Sunday, where we gobbled some up for gifts since they are only $27. That’s right: $27!! Can you believe that?? We couldn’t The picture at the top of the post displays how they looked in the store, only with a modest sign to the bottom left of them explaining what they are.
The pieces can be wrapped in house and come in all different colors and looks (well, multicolored “looks”) that you can give this to many people. This is a special opportunity to grab great, fun art from a great, fun (local) artist that does not happen that often. We hope that you run out and purchase one and that they are sold out very soon.
