Meeras paintings are on offer as high value art prints in museum quality. The prints stand out through an exceptional wealth of detail and vitality.
The paintings have been reproduced on acid-free cotton paper from Hahnemuehle. Prints on this papers can last for generations. In combination with top quality pigment inks, these prints almost do not fade or change color throughout their extremely long life span.
What Meera says about the prints:
“When Premendra showed me for the first time the prints, it was like my mind was washed away; I got such a fresh and crisp impression and I felt: This is not possible! The look of the prints was more crisp than my paintings, more fresh than my paintings. I asked him: ‘If I touch it, the ink comes off?‘ – because they looked so fresh.
The prints are 'the second generation'. They are becoming more objective than the painters intention to be objective. Clean, pure and a silence entered.
I´m happy that now the paintings are available to anybody, through the internet all over the world, globally they can be ordered and everybody can enjoy them.“

Premendra was born in Cologne, Germany, in 1957. From 1975 to 78, he studied photography and anthropology.
In 1980, he started a carpentry shop in Cologne. On various travels throughout Germany, he acquainted himself with the various carpentry styles and approaches in this country – without staying in one place, however – which is the prerequisite for a "recognized" training.
He became interested in the Japanese way of working with wood – mainly influenced by George Nakashima, the Japanese-American carpenter.
From 1983 onwards he lived for several years in Osho´s communes, mainly doing carpentry work.
In 1998, he stopped working with wood and became the graphic designer for the German Osho Times, where he remained responsible for the art work until 2008.
Since 2008, he has been working as a freelance photographer and graphic designer.
In 2010, he started the ”Art Print Shop Project“, travelling around the world and creating state-of-the-art prints of the paintings of Meera. Meera´s digital archive now comprises more than 1.500 of her paintings, covering everything she did since 1973 until now.
2015 he moved the Art Print Shop and himself to Sapporo.
