ABOUT US and OUR PRODUCTS - content
We are both passionate about words,
just ask Micha and you would hear her say: “Grants always had something to say so he is a natural at this!” (This may also be due to Grant’s professional acting background all over the U.S and the world for 30 years).
As for Micha, Grant would say : “She has a really great command of the English language with an eye for details and thirst for knowledge of how things work, and since she is originally from Berlin Germany; she may even speak better english then me!” (Micha was originally a map maker in Berlin)
Even though Artnwordz has only been around showing original artworks for l and 1/2 years, it’s been quite a wild ride, especially considering Grant didn’t even want to do the artwork in the first place! Yes, this was Micha’s grand scheme /idea and she threatened to leave Grant if he did not go along with such a wonderful idea. And wonderful it is according to others apparently !
Now our Artworks can be found at galleries, live shows and retail stores throughout the U.S, exhibiting the originals and duplicates and just newly added are wholesale Trade Shows (international Home Decor & Gift Markets) where we also offer the artwork on high quality decorative pillows .
Grant and Micha’s art will be featured in hotels beginning December 2016 and are currently represented by Art Studio 101 in Scottsdale AZ. As for the artwork itself Grant and Micha split the duties of creating the pieces . Grant is the one with Hamsters running around inside his head so his creations are the more elaborate gallery items, Micha’s are more detailed oriented and easy going.
So what are you actually looking at ? Good question !
THE SHORT VERSION ? We scour the U.S to save damaged World Atlas, Dictionaries and rare Sheet Musics and turn them into artwork before they disappear for good .Our paper is currently up to 150 years old. Each duplicate is a one of a kind because we match the top words to the artwork and the artwork to the paper so everything you see is there for a reason ! All you have to do is take a very close look at the paper and it should start to come into view. We then actually paint on the paper using what is known as Mixed Media Artistry. From digital outlining and photography to free hand painting with charcoal, chalk, water colors, graphic pens and two oil based crayons.
Well there you have it . This is Artnwordz where we love what we do and do what we love , thanks for appreciating our work !
Best Grant and Micha
