Iridescence N° 1 Risograph Print

In mythology, beetles are often portrayed as treasure keepers. The ancient Egyptian god Khepri was represented by a scarab beetle, or a scarab-headed man, holding the sun above. This symbol possibly arose from the Ancients watching dung beetles from the family Scarabaeidae. The action of rolling was related to the sun being rolled above the horizon. This explains why the beetle was regarded as a symbol of the heavenly cycle of rebirth. The beetle is also often used as a talisman or symbol of protection. This came about as scarabs were believed to sense the annual flooding of the Nile. The beetles would flee before the flood, announcing the much-anticipated arrival of the replenishing water.

There is no design without nature. Bienvenue Studios turns nature into visual culture. Using the beauty of nature, they create an environment from which one can draw vitalizing strength and sensory stimulation, as well as aesthetic well-being.
By exploring the boundaries of risography, a Japanese form of screen-printing, allows them to apply each colour individually and ensures a high luminosity. Thanks to this special process each print is one of a kind. A lot of passion goes into it, but no chemicals. The output is therefore not only the result of careful craftsmanship, but is also environmentally sustainable.
