Raking Light Projects, in conjunction with Mullowney Printing, is pleased to announce the release of a new group of etchings by San Francisco based artist and tattooer Tim Lehi.  The prints are group of thirty unique images on handmade paper, hand-painted by the artist.

Lehi uses the images of two tigers—one ascending a rocky crag with vestiges of skull forms, and the other descending through waves and clouds, on the back of a dragon.  The expressive and powerful painting style is a nod to the traditions of Japanese and Chinese scroll and landscape paintings.  Each of the thirty prints is uniquely painted with his colorful palette in his inimitable style.
