The Metamorphosis by Veronique Vanblaere

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.

Design By: Veronique Vanblaere
Veronique Vanblaere

Veronique Vanblaere (Vero), a Belgian artist, moved to Birmingham, AL in 1996, where she opened Naked Art, a gallery that focuses on non-traditional and functional art. Vero's mixed media sometimes morphs into much larger projects: in 2013, she painted every surface of Tau Poco, a restaurant owned by noted local chef Chris Dupont. She also gravitates towards fiber art, which includes sewing and creating wearable art, and has been recently orbiting around soft sculpture. Vero was a featured artist at Miami Art Basel 2014. She just finished an animated film "Bottomless", which she wrote, directed and illustrated, it features a character typical to her drawings and screened in over 27 film festivals around the world, including the Cannes Film Festival's short corner.

Artist Statement

Stories inspire me and libraries are mind healers. I remember reading the metamorphosis as a kid and I could not get it out of my head for months. Decades later, it still lent itself to plenty of visual imagery. I used ink and markers to create this design. — Veronique Vanblaere
