Greatest Indoor Christmas Decoration Ever
You haven’t seen anything like it, unless you were on the artist Kline Christmas list in 1999. However, it’s not too late to have one of your own Santa Claus artworks.
But let’s start from the beginning.
In 1991, artist Stephen Kline created a new style of art – not an easy feat by the 1990s. He called it Lines of Language, and it was chosen for the 1994 Florida National in Tallahassee, which was held at the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts. The piece, titled 3795 Signatures, was an abstract made up of his name signed over and over.
It was also in 1994 that Kline designed the Florida State of the Arts license plate that has made over $10,000,000 for the arts.
In 1999, Kline first used his Lines of Language technique to create an image of “Santa” out of the words Season’s Greetings to send out to his family, friends, and patrons. To accomplish this, he had the drawing printed into a lithograph. In order to make each print unique, he added additional words with gold and silver applied pen-and-ink and signed it in a limited edition.
The following year, Kline noticed that almost everyone who’d received the lithograph had had it framed and was now displaying it as part of their holiday celebration.
