This Beards of the World linocut features of some of my favourite bearded men from the World Beard and Moustache Championships. The competition takes place every two years, and hirsute men from all over the world come together to compete over who has the biggest, weirdest or most handsome beard or moustache.
All the bearded men are taken from my own photographs. In this print I wanted to show all the different national costumes people came in – as well as the amazing beards of course!
The print is a linocut, with the coloured parts screenprinted over the top. It is printed on 100% cotton rag archival buff-coloured etching paper and is available in an edition of 20.
Each print measures 18in (46cm) square, the paper size is 22in (56cm) square.
