Description

Open edition giclée by renowned Aleut artist, Thomas Stream. 

Measures 12"h x 33"w 

The Aleut has lived on Alaska's the Aleutian Islands for thousands of years. His paintings pay homage to his Aleut ancestors and their traditions. Stream's vivacious animals wear traditional Aleutian hunting hats. These represent nobility and status within Aleut society. 
 
The images rendered in Thomas Stream's current works of art illustrate humility and honor to a unique group of people. The Aleut people lived in a world of scarcity and became expert at deriving maximum benefits from the scanty resources that nature provided. He hopes that his work brings honor to his people, the Aleut.

Giclee, pronounced "jhee-clay" is a sophisticated inkjet printing method. It merges the use of professional-grade large format printers with archival pigment inks, on acid-free watercolor papers. Pigment printing refers to the use of pigments in various states to achieve brilliant and long-lasting work. Artists have painted with pigments for centuries with the purpose of creating fade-resistant and saturated colors. Now, these pigments are combined with modern technology to produce prints with a 100+ year archival life span, and color fidelity unmatched by any other print process. The beauty of your giclee print will be enjoyed without fading for decades.
