Artist Statement

"When times get hard, we persevere. Like water, we let it roll off our backs. Our resilience is what makes us come back stronger than ever, it's what makes us keep going and it's what will keep us from never giving up. Resilience (re·sil·ience) is what makes America great. This poster was created to highlight the word resilience in a way that made it feel like water on paper, or a material that was elastic. It has worn and wear, but is strong and bold, just like the word itself." - Emily Kelley

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
