This is an original digital pigment print by world renowned artists Doug & Mike Starn, AKA the Starn Twins, titled: 'Untitled' (Snowflake) from 2006. The piece is hand signed and numbered in pencil by the artists from the small edition of 30 being printed on Crane Museo paper.

The framed size measures 42 x 42" with both the art and frame being in mint condition. All framing materials used are of archival quality and are 100% acid free including U.V. protective Plexiglas.

Twin brothers Doug and Mike Starn were born in New Jersey in 1961 and both earned MFAs at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1985. They specialize in photography and photo-based mixed-media works which include such materials as plexiglass, wood, nails, and transparency film. The Starn brothers typically reinterpret traditional or famous images from art history, and incorporates them into their particularly unique style of art. Their work is often collaged with scotch tape and push pins holding everything together, a decidedly low-tech approach to creating various works of high-art. The artists have exhibited at numerous venues internationally including solo shows at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY), Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum (Kagawa, Japan), National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia), and the Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, CA).
