Erlik's Messenger - A memory of my nighttime adventure. It was not yet completely dark when I passed here. Suddenly, in the twilight light, a rider silently galloped past the stones and disappeared...The work was being born for a long time - about ten years, and each time it appears in a new way. - Azat Minnekaev



All our paper and canvas prints are made using the giclee process, a technology for fine art reproduction using high resolution images, archival paper or canvas, pigment rather than dye-based inks, and a high-quality inkjet printer. With proper care, giclee prints can last 100-200 years without significant fading. Your artwork is printed and framed to order. Please allow 7-10 business days for delivery.


Unframed Print

Giclee print made using archival inks on Entrada Rag Natural, a luxurious, thick, 100% cotton, smooth fine art paper. This archival paper is acid and lignin-free to guarantee that prints last a lifetime without fading. Unframed prints include a 1” white border around the image to allow for future matting and framing if desired.
