about the three mackerels
StigerWoods is a product by the 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. During Martijn’s world trip in 2011 the idea for Stiger-Woods came up. A small wooden panel with a hand-printed photo on it directly caught his eye. Back in Holland he started experimenting with various types of printing to get the same result.
To make a StigerWoods piece he manually transfer 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. The knots, cracks and veins of the wood remain visible which give the work an authentic and rough character. Because the wood is sawn by hand no piece is straight or the same. All these imperfections play an important role in his work.
StigerWoods is mostly recognized through the portraying of beautiful, edible exotic fish but also sells herbs, birds and specials.
The mackarel is a cold water fish that lives in large groups.
