Aloha ʻĀina Collection: Inspired by Hawaii's Land & People
Belsky's Aloha 'Āina Prints are handprinted block/screen works. Originally designed as blocks carved from wood, linoleum or pvc sheets they are adjusted for the screen and printed by hand in limited editions, signed and pinky-printed by the artist. The subject matter of this collection is essentially related to the spirit of Aloha 'Āina -- Love of the Land. Belsky explains, " This is the philosophy of Polynesia, that it would do America much good to follow. We Have much to be thankful for in Hawaii, and through my work I try to spread the appreciation for Nature and God's blessings."
Printed by hand in limited editions, each print is a unique work. With approximately twenty different designs in the collection there is something to appeal to most anyone who loves Hawaiʻi.
The Aloha ʻĀina Collection is printed on off-white, tan or brown 60 or 70 lb. Artists Kraft paper with custom black ink. In the spirit of love and compassion for the land, all paper and inks are environmentally friendly.
