The Working Proof: Sarajo Frieden - Blue Water

Blue Water is a gorgeous new print by Sarajo Frieden, a LA-based artist and illustrator. Sarajo is fascinated by the ocean, and Blue Water was inspired by photos of bioluminescent phytoplankton.
All marine life relies on phytoplankton, which also “fixes” carbon dioxide by removing it from the atmosphere. Recent studies suggest a decline in phytoplankton, and warming seas threaten their populations. These amazing creatures that inhabit the seas, so crucial to life, made me think about all the beauty and wonder that often goes unseen. This piece is a humble attempt to paint an imaginary slice of the sea; like shining a flashlight in a hidden place to illuminate what is there.
Blue Water is printed on 365gsm 100% cotton rag paper with archival pigments. 15% of each print sold will be donated to American Forests. Buy the print here, and read our interview with Sarajo here.
