Artist Christian Riese Lassen has been recognized the world over for more than 20 years for his unique art and vision. Regarded as the premier marine artist of our time, his majestic paintings inspire appreciation and awareness of Mother Earth. Raised on the island of Maui, the self taught artist and avid surfer found his original influence in nature and from the ocean and has translated this intimate knowledge into enchanting and popular works of art that have brought us closer to marine life than ever before.
Selected by the United Nations as Goodwill Ambassador for 1998, International Year of the Ocean, Mr. Lassen created the painting "Sanctuary" for the United Nations commemorative stamp for "Ocean Preservation".

What is an Artagraph?
An artagraph is dimensional oil on canvas, which recreates not only the color of the original, but also the surface texture in every detail. First, digital laser scans the colors of the original. The colors are printed overlapping layers using oil based inks on oil substrate (oil base). Second, relief-molding process is taken from the surface of the original by using patented silicone gel substance. After capturing every surface detail, 72 hours later, the mold is removed. In the third stage, the negative mold, the printed oil based substrate and the laminated canvas are all placed into an oven press and heated (600° F) under high pressure, causing the oil to liquefy into all crevices on the mold. Immediately, the artagraph is shock frozen with liquid nitrogen, leaving permanent surface texture.
Each individual painting comes with specific numbered certificate of authenticity and appraisal report.
