Art & sustainability


I myself am very environmentally conscious and try to do business as sustainably as possible.

For example, I am very economical with the paint I use and do not waste anything. Do I have leftovers at the end of the day? Then I use that for the background of new work. But I also pay attention to the type and brand of paint I work with, use reusable (recycled) protective covers for transporting my paintings, paint on linen instead of cotton and collect the sludge when washing out brushes so that it does not disappears into the sink.

But you as a consumer can also contribute if you are looking for something for on your wall.

  • For example, it is better not to buy posters/reproductions that are made in large quantities. The production process is not environmentally friendly, print runs are large, so there are many residual batches that are destroyed.
  • Due to the worse quality, a reproduction will last less long (discolored or warp) and you will ends sooner as waste.
  • unique artwork is more sustainable because the quality is better and you can enjoy it for a lifetime. If you decide to replace it after a long period of time, you can sell it, often for a higher price than the purchase price. Because it is a unique work and you are the only one who has it, you will be happy with it and proud of it for much longer.

The purchase price is obviously higher, but in the end it has more value. Don't want to make this investment? Then consider the art loan! A nice way to hang original work on your wall for a small amount and to change it regularly.

You can also support artists by choosing the second option. With reproductions they often receive a minimal fee for reproducing their design.
