This Thursday Guy Hepner and the TAX Collection are pleased to be releasing a series of prints with Miami based artist Dan Alva. The series features a set of two limited edition works and a unique hand embellished set from the artist’s latest body of work, Outsourced. The prints will be available directly on the Guy Hepner Online Shop on Thursday November 14th from 2pm EST.
The Outsourced series is a modern reinterpretation of old master paintings using original materials and methods. The series has become Alva’s very own Masters in Art History. “It’s been in the works and under research for about three years, but this last year I really kicked it off. Aside from the painting itself, my favorite part has been these forced collaborations between dead masters that never would have happened back in those days. For example “Sleeping with the Fishes” has Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Van Gogh all in one.” – Dan Alva
