I’m all about art shopping. My walls are way too full of pieces that I’ve either put together myself or picked up in my hometown or travels. If I ever decide to move, it’ll be quite a pain packing them all up. I’ve committed to putting on the brakes a little bit with the art purchases when I travel, but I was eager to put that commitment on hold while recently in Copenhagen. Because…Paper Collective.
The justification: they print everything on eco friendly paper, and 10% of the profit for every piece goes to a charity of the artist’s choosing. So obviously I had to buy something. It’s good for the world, OKAY?
PC finds graphic designers, creative agencies, artists, illustrators – you name it – to produce collections of super-minimalist, Scandinavian poster designs, which are printed on earth-friendly paper, right there in Denmark. I did exercise *some* restraint in that I only purchased one poster while I was there. It’s called Salut 01, by Mariken Steen, and my purchase supported cancer research. : )
