As Michael Page returns for his 4th RUN we are excited to showcase these hand-embellished archival pigment prints of one of his latest pieces "Odin's Protector."

"Odin's Protector was created to watch over the most important person in my world. Odin was made to represent a new uprise or re-birth for a new birth. The original was painted with acrylic paint with layers of oil over the top to give a depth affect and glow to the piece. I also added gold flakes and glitter in some areas. For these prints each piece will be uniquely hand-embellished, making each a one of a kind." - Michael Page

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Michael Page and 1xRUN.

Michael Page Returns to 1x With Odin’s Protector

1xRUN Thru Interview
Odin’s Protector by Michael Page

1xRun: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?   

Michael Page:  Odin’s Protector was created to watch over the most important person in my world. Odin was made to represent a new uprise or re-birth for a new birth. The original was painted with acrylic paint with layers of oil over the top to give a depth affect and glow to the piece. I also added gold flakes and glitter in some areas. It was created from 2011- 2012.

1xRun: How long did the piece take?    

Michael Page:  Each piece varies in the time it takes to complete, depending on how many other paintings I am working on.  I would say anywhere from 100 to 300 hours for a bigger piece like Odin’s Protector.

1xRun: What is unique about this piece?     

Michael Page:  It was created by me for the purpose of creating what I love to do…make art. Also each piece will be uniquely hand-embellished, making each a one of a kind.
