The focus is on limited, high quality, small-edition prints produced from some of the artist’s most exciting and intriguing artworks.

Purchases and shipping can be made with a simple click.

Currently available are his most recent signed and numbered edition of prints from the series Altars for Amor y Salud, 2020. These artworks, informed by the knolling process, were created by the artist as ephemeral installations inside his house during the initial lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic. After various requests, he decided to make them available as small-print editions. Future Eternal, Iridescent 2008, an edition of only 25, is also available for the first time in a small-size print.
