Brutalism Fine Art Print - DEO1

Regular price$140.00
Tax included.


The incredible, colour-saturated reimagining of Canberra's Brutalist buildings by Lymesmith shows Brutalism in a whole new light. This print features Telstra’s Deakin Office, built in 1976.

The limited-edition works are printed on 310gsm mold-made archival watercolour paper that has an extraordinary textured finish - just like concrete. Each print is numbered and signed by the artist.

Available in 3 sizes: A1 Edition of 25; A2 Edition of 50; A3 Edition of 50. Once they're gone, they're gone!

A word from Lymesmith

The Deakin Office building is totally intriguing. Virtually windowless, and imposingly sited at the base of Red Hill, it was built for Telstra, but was never quite used as intended. Rumours about its real use are whispered. I’ve been unable to discover the architect’s identity.

I find its severe, heavily modelled façade, extremely beautiful. Applying colour was more challenging than expected. In retrospect, I feel that these colour transformations are somehow Art Deco in style. I can imagine the building repurposed as a grand cinema or theatre.

No raw concrete was harmed in the production of these artworks.

Prints are unframed and arrive rolled in a cylinder. They fit standard frames. Gingerfinch recommends Frames Now for your off-the-shelf framing needs (we're not affiliated, we just love their work). 

The Fine Art Prints are custom printed and signed to order. They will take 2-3 weeks to be shipped.
