Artist Javier Calleja is set to release his two new limited edition artworks through Avant Arte, a digital online platform known for its highly-curated selection of works from iconic and international artists. The two artworks are reflective of Calleja’s signature style — both are self-portraits that are at once simple and humorous yet dark and rife with deep emotional meaning.
The first portrait series titled “Handfinished Edition” spotlights Calleja’s signature anime-inspired artistic style. The mixed media screenprint, which comes in an edition of 25, shows a wide-eyed image of Calleja’s character wearing a T-shirt with the words “Never Not Working,” while holding up his hand in a playful “rock on” hand gesture.
Moving onto the second artwork series titled “Up To You” utilizes the same character illustration Calleja has become known for with its wide green eyes. There’s also the second iteration of this artwork which shows his character wearing a new T-shirt with another one of Calleja’s well-known catchphrases, “Up to You” in big bold red letters. This artwork comes in a limited edition of 75.
