This month’s page is printed on our Xerox Iridesse Press in full-color plus two spot metallic inks on Classic Techweave Solar White. It stands tall on our paperboard stand produced by our Large Format Printing department team – sleek and stylish!
About the Work
Wetiko is the creative expression of artist Kyle Danley. For 15 years, Kyle has been creating works that hope to find a comfortable balance between what is real and society’s forced “realities.”
“This mural was painted following a trip to Sun Valley, ID. The imagery I chose depicts a specific moment of this trip when the side effects of Wetiko were subdued on a walk with a lover. Relationship hardship was put on hold when a mother moose and her offspring came forward, like medicine, to clarify what was really going on. There was beauty in that moment, and the love for his partner and love for being alive was restored.”
