"Everyone has a soul place, a place of memories, of first best friends, first sounds and scents. A place where one can go back in time and start all over again. That's my childhood place, the village street I grew up on and probably the only place that I really love. I painted it by mixing the image of the street as it is today with the image I've been carrying along for 30 years now." Vali Petridean

About the printing technique
Giclée fine art prints are high-fidelity reproductions of original artworks, produced on a professional ink-jet printer.
The 270g textured fine art paper we use offers a great archival stability, guaranteeing a durability that exceeds 100 years for prints framed behind glass and guarded from UV rays. The watercolor texture of the surface lends a certain characteristic to the print, revealing impressive details of the artwork.
