The natural colour makes a big come back. What do all these artists see in natural dyes?
It is a living colour!
No chemicals used in eco-printing.
All colours are from leaves, moss and flowers.
My name is Ari, I am an architect by trade, and also artist and maker.
I love sketching and drawing, I love colour.
It took me a few years to learn how to capture, control and contain natural colours.
My philosophy: Everything we do in life has to be done sustainably, casting thoughts to the future.
Natural colour is good for our environment.
