Some of our newest prints in store! These creative maps challenge us to view our surroundings from our spatial awareness rather than GPS. As creator and designer Archie Archambault explains “My maps aim to install a “Map from the Mind”, simplifying structures and neighbourhoods in the most efficient and beautiful way. The circle, our Universe’s softest shape, is the clearest graphic to convey size and connection”. Currently in store we have: The Map of Vancouver, The Solar System and The Moon. You can see more of Archie’s Press HERE.
Nothing can beat this great description found on the artist’s website: “Nikki McClure of Olympia, Washington is known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts. Armed with an X-acto knife, she cuts out her images from a single sheet of paper and creates a bold language that translates the complex poetry of motherhood, nature, and activism into a simple and endearing picture.” In store we carry her cards, calendars, and a few of her prints. You can find out more about Nikki McClure and her work HERE.

Prints & Posters
The establishment of major poster and print sources online has meant that it is no longer practical or cost effective for many retailers to carry a selection of posters in-store.
For this reason, here at Artageous, we have decided to stock only prints of what we feature on the gallery walls in store so that our customers can purchase either framed or unframed versions of what they see on our walls.
Art Sources Online
Below are some great resources for finding and purchasing artwork online.
We love Etsy for finding unique and independent artists who you can purchase from directly. For popular, open edition and major artists prints and posters we often recommend art.com, which often has sales and coupon codes available on the main page of their website.
