Limited edition signed Juanjo Novella print. The print is identical to the one shown in the photo but does NOT come framed. We kept one ourselves and framed it. the one for sale is in perfect condition and not even opened.

Spanish artist / sculptor Juan Jose (Juanjo) Novella, an artist of international standing, was commissioned to make a sculpture for Nelson city.

Juanjo also produced a run of 300 limited edition prints depicting the sculpture.

Nelson council made 100 of those available to the public.

At that time, the prints were worth about 150 Euro (approx $225 NZD ) each - hopefully they are now worth more as art tends to increas in value.

We have number 89 for sale ( identical to 91 shown in the photo). size approximately 50cm x 35cm

It is unframed and unopened and comes in the original paper, giving information about the project.

The piece alludes to Nelson’s strong relationship with the sea. Inspired by marine plant formations (such as kelp seaweed and mussel shells), the sculpture’s curved shape is orientated east/west and as the sun moves overhead, fascinating shadows will be cast, ever moving like the tide that ebbs and flows, and fish that dance in the shallows.

A sense of sheltering represents the curving, partially enclosed shape, suggesting inclusion and welcome as well as a haven to come to.

The artwork was shipped from Spain in sections and it was welded and shaped under the supervision of Novella. Please click here to ask a question
