Papirmass is a monthly art print subscription. Each month, you’ll get an art print to satisfy your art and cultural curiosity – delivered right to your doorstep. You’ll never have trouble adding a new art print for your collection since Papirmass is the perfect way to discover new and upcoming great artists. It ships worldwide (with free shipping!) from Canada.

The prints are wrapped in custom-printed rigid mailers perfect to protect the print from awful weather. There’s also an invitation to share our personalize print display on social media.

This month’s artist is Vanessa McKeown, who lives in London, UK. We received a card with information about the artwork and a short interview with the artist. According to her the hardest part of starting a career was going freelance.

This fun piece is called “Tomatoloon.” The artist glued balloons to the vines of tomatoes and then photographed it leading to a really cool collection. I love how natural it looks and I will say if I found pink tomatoes I would absolutely pop them into my mouth.

On the back side are suggestions for displaying my new art and a few questions to help me get the full effect of art appreciation. I love this month’s suggestion for displaying this lovely piece in a bright white frame. It’s also kind of fun to check out their social media to see what others are inspired to create from the art that is showcased each month.

What a great way to remind yourself to look at things from all angles. We can’t always see eye to eye because everything can be interpreted differently depending on how they are looked at, this is something that should hang by the door.

A postcard featuring an avocado filled with sprinkles, use this to show friends near or far what they are missing by not subscribing to Papirmass. Personally, I’m keeping this postcard because I feel like it describes my life: trying to be different in a world that is keeping me inside the lines.

Papirmass continues to bring amazing art and new artists to my doorstep month after month. I like the questions to help with my art appreciation. My appreciation for art in many forms has grown thanks to Papirmass, I feel like I can now hold my own when discussing art. This month’s selection is my favorite in the last 3-4 months. I’m not sure what it is that made me fall in love with Tomatoloon but it will be featured in my reading nook.
