Artist Statement

"Being Colombian, I've been aware and horrified by countless stories of people being displaced by violence. As an artist, the least I can do, is to bring some awareness to this heartbreaking situation. Colombia is the second country with most refugees in the world. Over 6 million Colombians have been forcefully displaced. All their stories have one thing in common: hope for peace." - Juana Medina

Juana Medina is an illustrator and designer currently living in Washington, DC.

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.
