      Hello Kim,
      Thank you for your interest in my work. I can print in my studio any size up to 40″w x 60″h on canvas or paper. I can also print on aluminum metal sheets that have specific sizes, 11×14, 12×18, 16×20, 16×24, 20×30, 48×48 or 48×96. The prints on metal have a very cool, slick surface and look to them and seem to be the main choice of medium in galleries these days. I am sorry that I don’t have a price list for each size and media possibility but if you tell me what size you might like and/or what your budget is, I am sure that I can accommodate you. I made a very small run of 6 prints of “The Wave” that were 5″ x 7″ and adhered to Plexiglas 1″ thick, but those are sold out. If you live near enough, you are welcome to visit my studio in Manhattan Beach to pick up your print. My email is .

      Sincerely,
      Chick

  2. We purchased a print of “Tales ofTavarua, Fiji Islands” Vanishing Wilderness,in Fiji as my my wife and I were leaving Tavarua in 1993. It has faded quite a bit. Is it possible to purchase a new print of this painting?

      Hello John. Yes, the poster is available. In fact, I just reprinted it about a year ago in coordination with Tavarua Island owner/manager Dave Clark. It has the revised background story of Tavarua in the lower border graphics and remastered color and sharpness. For $70 I will sign, pack and ship the poster to you. Please make the check out to Charles Bragg and send to 502 Rosecrans Ave., Unit A, Manhattan Beach CA 90266. Let me know what you would like to do and thank you for being a fan of mine, Tavarua and, probably, surfing. Sincerely, Chick

  3. Greetings Chick – back in the early 1990’s I purchased “City Limits” at the Nature Company store in downtown San Diego. I just fell in love with the print and your art has brought much joy to friends and family that have viewed the piece and it has been especially rewarding watching young children attempting to find all of the animals that are camouflaged in the fauna! The print is approximately 23″ x 33″ in size and I had it professionally framed shortly after purchase to ensure the art could be enjoyed by all who visited my home. Unfortunately, I have misplaced my original receipt and the background data supplied by The Nature Company during my many moves and would appreciate any information you can provide regarding this masterpiece. Was it commissioned by the store and approximately how many were printed? Is it technically considered a lithograph and did you do other pieces for The Nature Company?
    I hope to add another Bragg print to my office soon! I just want to make sure the theme reflects the threat of development and “progress” as eloquently as “City Limits”. Thank you! Michael H.

      Hello Michael. Thank you for such kind words. “City Limits” was the very first of my environmental paintings and images that continued for 20 years. The very first printing of it in 1987 had The Greater Los Angeles Zoo graphics on it and the Nature Company picked it up a few years later. The poster was printed by an “off-set, four color process” on massive printers. It was reprinted several times and I guess there might have been about 25,000 posters printed in all. It has also appeared on calendars, jigsaw puzzles, greeting cards, books and the like. The actual painting was finished in November 1986, acrylic on canvas. It was not a commission. Believe it or not, it was just something that came together as I painted it and the title came to me the day that I finished it. I have about 100 posters of it left and have “Secrets of the Rainforest” as well. Thanks again and good luck. Chick By the way, my website is charleslynnbragg.com.

      1. I just found a copy of “City Limits” today in Springfield Mo, it is the greater los Angeles version. Do you know how many of these were printed? Was it sold in the gift shop? Did subsequent printings have the Los Angeles Zoo branding?

  4. Charles – so sorry, I forgot to ask if you know where I might find the print “Secrets of the Rainforest”? I gave this print to my best friend many years ago and it was water logged during the hurricane “Harvey”. Thanks! Mike

  5. Charles,

      Hi Michelle, thanks for being a long term fan! What are the titles of your posters? I probably have copies of them, that I could sign and send to you.
      Good luck,
      Chick

  6. Hi Chick,

    I just read that you might have copies of posters you could sign. My husband had a City Limits poster that got destroyed recently when we moved. I was trying to find one online to get him for Xmas and saw this thread. Is there any chance I could buy one and pay to have it shipped as quickly as possible? I know it’s a long shot and a tall order but figured I’d try asking!

    Thank you for all the beauty you’ve put into the world!!

    Best,
    Susan

      Hello Susan,
      I do have the City Limits poster. I could sign it and/or personalize it to you or your husband. $65 to sign, pack and ship. If you want it, please send a check to 502 Rosecrans Ave., Unit A, Manhattan Beach CA 90266. When I receive the check, I will ship it out the same day, 1st class mail USPS. I’m not sure if that would get to you by Christmas or not. If you wanted it shipped overnight to receive the next day, it would be an extra $25 (sorry, that’s what it would cost me to expedite the package). What do you think?

  7. Hi, I have a work titled animal house is that your work? It has a house with a rhino in the doorway, a birdbath and newspaper on the front lawn along with a black cat. Also, I’m curious to know how common this print is. I don’t see it posted on your site. Thank you for your time.

      Hi Tracy! ANIMAL HOUSE is my work. I don’t know how I missed putting it on my website. I’ll have to fix that! ANIMAL HOUSE was inspired by a visit at a Zoo in Morelia, Mexico. There was a big, fenced enclosure with an adobe style, small building in the middle of it. In the open doorway was a rhino resting its head just as it is in the painting. It was his/her house. It was perfect. I made a limited edition giclee print of the image and eventually made a poster too. Thanks for contacting me. Good luck and Aloha, Charles
