What you see here is the result of 25 years of full time artistic endeavor in a studio with large teams of painters. A few years ago, we calculated that it would take one painter close to a thousand years to paint all this. Add all the archive works and it is much more. But that is only the actual painting. What is most important is the editing and perfecting of the files which yield these prints. This is not done by computers but by artists on computers who make millions of split second aesthetic decisions in order to get the right result. That is why the New York Times gave us a two page editorial in 2006. We were the first company to transform hand painted material into a new art form: Digital Media, not in order to reproduce but to create new imagery in a convincingly hand painted quality.
