"What is written in the map - I can't read it in the photo. Are these city names?"
Okay, this is an Andy Warhol original, but doesn't pretend to be. It's a map printed on stretch canvas and It looks much better than a poster because it's on canvas. iI's quite clever and contains all the major cities in the world in their approximately correct location. I wanted something to fill up a library wall: this does the job and cost less than $$$. I got the cobalt blue, so it would look like an old blueprint, and I like it--but it comes in other colors and sizes,also. This artist also does many other styles of world maps in similarly clever ways. If you are looking at filling up a wall or just want a map that doesn't look like it came out of the glove-box, this could work for you, too....

Art and design were always Michael's favorite subjects at school. He was fortunate to land a job as a graphic designer at one of London's most prestigious publishing companies. After 12 years Michael Topsett made the decision to pursue a full-time career creating his own work. The freedom and time to be able to focus solely on his own projects has been a wonderful experience. Athrough Michael likes to experiment with different styles and subjects, hi main focus is on map art. He enjoys looking for unique and interesting ways to depict something which is very familiar. Maps are visual representations of the world we live in, a world which is incredibly diverse. Apart from maps, Tompsett creates urban landmark and cityscape designs.
Giclee (jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating high quality fine art reproductions. The attainable excellence that Giclee printmaking affords makes the reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original piece. The result is wide acceptance of Giclee by galleries, museums, and private collectors. Gallery wrap is a method of stretching an artist's canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides and is secured on a hidden, wooden frame. This method of stretching and preparing a canvas allows for a frameless presentation of the finished painting.
