about the Dragon fruit #1
StigerWoods is mostly recognized through the portraying of beautiful, edible exotic fish.
StigerWoods is a product by Amsterdam based artist Martijn Smulders, who transfers pictures onto scaffolding wood. By adding a layer of epoxy coating, the wooden artworks start to remind of classic Dutch painted tiles.
To make a StigerWoods piece Martijn manually transfers photos to recycled pine wood by using an old hobby technique. In some parts of the photo scratches could appear caused by the ink of the transfer not sticking to the wood. However, the knots, cracks and veins of the wood remain visible which gives the work an authentic and rough character. The wood is sawn by hand. Therefore, no piece is straight or the same. All these imperfections play an important role in his work.
The surface of each wooden photo is finished off with a high gloss epoxy coating to create the effect of old ceramic tiles. The combination of this shiny surface, simple strong images and a raw material creates an unique and lively art product. Most of the photos Martijn develops are in collaboration with his friend and photographer Studio Aico.
