About the Artwork
Vital is a modern day nomad who lives and works in various locations around the globe. His work is very much influenced by the surroundings of his different studios and by the notion of what is the sense of “home”. His many trips around the world have turned him into a restless searcher for the essence and its symbolic transformation into art of the locations he visited.
"My real studio is in my head. So it's always where I am right now."
The limited edition portfolio titled 七 (the Chinese numerical symbol for seven) contains 7 archival pigment prints of Dali stone, a type of marble native to Southwest China. These marble compositions emerge in delicate greys and blacks, analogous to Vital's monochrome palette.
About the printing Technique
The term "pigment print" is used generally for any type of printed image that uses strictly pigments. Pigments can be either on a mineral basis or they can be an artificial product. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing.
