ABOUT THE MEDIUM: Limited edition prints are reproductions of an original piece of artwork. We offer giclée prints on canvas and paper, which are museum-quality prints that last upwards of 100 years. Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. The run of prints is capped at a specific number (often between 100-500). Limited edition prints can be more valuable to art collectors than prints without a restricted number of copies because of the rarity of the prints.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Defined by and recognized for his elaborate use of texture in his signature impressionistic style, Trevor Mezak is an artist who is driven to create every day. “I feel the day is missing something if I don’t,” says the artist.
Fascinated with the world around him; he has a passion for painting figurative subjects but has also held a long-time fascination with the design elements of playing cards, especially face cards.
Born in Southern California, Mezak has been painting since his teens. His self-taught style has evolved through his vast experience with mediums and techniques. Oils, because of their vivid color and texture, have proved to be his medium of choice.
While he notes William DeBilzan and Aldo Luongo as artists who inspire him, Mezak draws much of his inspiration from his experiences in the world and the mood they establish. “Before painting, I have to go surfing. It puts me in a good place. When you’re in a good mood, it shows in your art. My studio is filled with loud music, the smell of coffee, my black lab at my side, and the occasional kid running through.”
Trevor Mezak has placed in several exhibitions, both locally and nationally. His pieces can be found in many private collections, noting Michael Brown of the Chicago Bears and actor Paul Walker, among them.
ABOUT THE FILM: Beauty and the Beast is a 1991 American animated musical romantic fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is based on the 1756 French fairy tale of the same name by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, and ideas from the 1946 French film of the same name directed by Jean Cocteau. Beauty and the Beast focus on the relationship between the Beast, the voice of Robby Benson, a prince who is magically transformed into a monster and his servants into household objects as punishment for his arrogance, and Belle, the voice of Paige O'Hara, a young woman whom he imprisons in his castle. To break the curse, Beast must learn to love Belle and earn her love in return before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose, or else the Beast will remain a monster forever. The film also features the voices of Richard White, Jerry Orbach, David Ogden Stiers, and Angela Lansbury.
