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.

Artist Statement

I created this project originally for my college assignment. I chose the topic that I really care about: Refugee Crisis. I think what happened to them is just not fair. They never choose to leave their home country. It's devastating and saddening to see so much rejection they received, on top of the huge burden they already have. Hopefully, my work can open people's eyes, turn rejection into acceptance, and restore a bit of faith in humanity. This artwork is created with Constructivism style. This style were being experimented since 1920, mostly in Russia. Constructivism uses a lot of collage, arrow, non-conventional text layout, and muted-limited colour palate. I used a lot of collage, experiment with text-layouting, opacity, and colour. I hope my work can raise awareness of the refugees' situation, and open people's heart for empathy. We were strangers too. I want the refugee to know that they are not alone. Together, we can make a change and make this world a little better place to live. — Maria Marselina
