The Working Proof: Andrea D'Aquino - Green Zen I + II

Today we bring you not one, but TWO prints - Green Zen I + II, by Andrea D'Aquino. According to Andrea, "the prints were inspired by Gustav Klimt, Tibetan sculptures of Buddha, and medieval European religious paintings. Interestingly, the hands are very similar in both and seem to suggest higher knowledge or inner peace in both cultures."

We love the way that the two images interact with each other – abstract versus illustrative, textured versus simple. We imagine that one print is of the woman, and the other print is of the inner woman. Both prints were signed and numbered by the artist. They are digital prints on Hahnemühle Fine Art archival paper.

15% of the sale of these prints goes to The Shama Foundation, a non-profit providing in-country educational opportunities for children of the African island nation of Madagascar. It does so with the confidence that a good level of education within a country reaches beyond individuals and touches the nation as a whole.
