The story behind the Forgotten Beauty collection

The Forgotten beauty is a modern romantic series inspired by the appreciation of past remains that may have been forgotten due to our endless desire for something better, something new.  A romanticised interpretation of historic monuments, the Forgotten Beauty collection aims at bringing awareness to over-development and can act as a reminder for the need to preserve the unique characteristics of places.

Every MASE print tells a story.....

Many people who follow my work often ask me how I design my art prints. Once I explain to them the story behind the print, a natural attachment is formed where by my customers can relate to the story.  It is truly rewarding for me to see such a great response from my customers that I feel I should therefore capitalise on this opportunity to explain my typical design process for our MASE bags and what makes them so special. MASE is an extension of my beliefs and vision, to celebrate the beauty around us. Most importantly, it embraces a subtle beauty from within. Every MASE print I design has its own distinct story to tell, it is a form of artistic expression...

Get purified

White is often used for highlighting features by bringing them 'forward' so that your attention is drawn to them.  This is true in almost all art forms, perhaps due to the fact that it is the most reflective colour in the spectrum and its representation of perfection.  In the colour spectrum, it contains an equal balance of all the colours which makes it the 'perfect' colour whilst containing no hue.  Due to the brightness of the shade, it is often refer to as the positive colour that represents hope - the complete opposite of darkness.
