Hello again fellow-Creative-Beings. I hope that since my last article you have had a chance to digest the new information from “Designing 101” and apply the knowledge to your décor in some way. For those of you that were brave enough to comment on my article, I salute you.
Today I come to you with a question that you probably do not hear often. What are you hanging on the walls of your offices or homes? To be more specific, do you know how it’s printed? Do you know what compounds are in the inks, dyes, pigments, and papers? Does it outgas or offgas? Is it healthy? Do you care?
Creating sustainable, healthy interior graphics for interior decor in commercial and residential settings does not happen accidentally. Sustainable, “Green” fine art and photographic reproductions of the highest quality are infused with a high degree of care and detail while being produced. Many clients do not even realize these factors exist when shopping for printed art and simply never ask about it.

Recently I inquired about Anastasiy Safari’s printing and mounting methods, in particular the Fire and Wood piece. I think you will be just as impressed as I was when you find out how many steps this extraordinary piece had undergone before it reached the white walls of the gallery it rests on today.
