Vital Investigation Print
Being an artist is exploring the unknown. And sometimes that unknown is the true nature of self and the world. Investigating forms of self-expression and representation while exploring the limitless potential of the human figure as a subject, the artist Richa explores the human experience of finding herself through an introspective lens, and hopes her viewers will do the same.
Printed on Hahnemuhle German Etching textured paper (310 GSM), the overall effect of the artwork is similar to that of a painting, rather than just a print. Sprayed with a protective varnish (invisible, matte), it can be framed even without glass, if you would like.
Please note minor variance in size and color is to be expected due to the handcrafted nature of the piece.
Our new Story Find, Richa Kashelkar, is an artist based in India. With a formal education in Architecture, Richa now works as a photographer and illustrator with her partner Pavan in Goa, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Richa uses her art as a medium to express her inner world where imagination has no restrictions, and beauty and magic is everywhere. Often inspired by local elements, architecture, nature, and people in various moments of joy or wonder; she feels it is impossible to not be influenced by your surroundings.
Story Finds lists five of Richa's artworks that caught our fancy - Pool Party, Girlfriends, Textile Connoisseur, Vital Investigation and High Sensitivity Heart. All inspired by the artist's love for finding realism within her imagination.

As all of our items are handcrafted using all-natural fibers and some plant-based dyes, we’ve put together a few words of advice how to best care for them so they brighten up your home for years to come.
HUIPIL CUSHIONS, BATIK & IKAT CUSHIONS, NAGA CUSHIONS, STRAPS & YOGA BAGS
Because these items are made with vintage textiles and may include leather accenting or hardware, we recommend that they are professionally dry cleaned when cleaning is required.
JASPE & JASPE BASURA
We recommend that cushions, rugs, throws and bed blankets from these collections are dry cleaned. This will ensure that colors retain their luster and fabric its shape.
TOTO & CHILE VERDE
Gently wash cushions, bed blankets and throws from these collections by hand, in cool water. Wrap the tassels in rubber bands before washing, use mild soap and line dry to maintain the piece's original shape.
Due to its smooth, non-porous surface made of glass, enamel is bacteria inhibiting and easy to clean. Clean with lime juice and baking soda using the smooth side of the cleaning sponge or a soft brush.
We recommend hand-washing these fabrics with mild soap. For tie & dye pieces, please wash them at 30°C and striped pieces at 40°C and lay flat to dry. Dry cleaning is recommended for kapok-filled cushion inserts.
Clean with a natural or mild cleanser (avoid harsh chemicals) and a soft cloth.
Vacuum regularly. Rotate every few months to even out wear, especially if the rug is located in a high traffic area. In case of a liquid spill, blot the spot using a white cloth to draw up the liquid; never rub a wet stain to prevent colors from bleeding. If further spot cleaning is required, entrust your rug to a professional dry cleaning service.
While in storage, do not place objects on top of the artwork. Keep handling to a minimum when during the hanging process and hold your print only from the sides. Fine art papers can scratch easily, so be very careful to avoid scraping anything across the surface of the print.
For cleaning we recommend using a clean, white, dry, soft lint-free cloth to gently wipe off dust and/or dirt. Use a white non-colored cloth will allow you to see when dust has been collected.
It is recommended that you never display giclee prints in direct sunlight and avoid high temperatures and humidity as it can cause yellowing.
