In his recent exhibit at Vallery, “Time/Life: Science/Library,” Funderburgh displayed prints of his wallpaper designs as well as a variety of objects wrapped in his prints. To produce the stunning presentation, Vasava depended on the HP Designjet L25500 Printer, the HP Designjet Z2100 Photo Printer and HP printing materials that included HP PVC-free Wall Paper and HP Air Release Adhesive Gloss Cast Vinyl.

Print quality that’s true to the art

“My medium is my computer. Doing my art digitally lets me focus on the design,” says Funderburgh, who’s based in Brooklyn, New York.

Funderburgh’s digital artistry reveals his love for the decorative arts, for objects that are both useful and beautiful. His work evokes historic wallpapers, ornate façades and architecture. Funderburgh knew his exhibit prints had to be high-quality, precise and consistent to do justice to the intricate designs.

The HP Designjet L25500 and HP PVC-free Wall Paper provided a smooth, high-definition finish for the nine 8-foot-high sheets of wallpaper printed with Funderburgh’s designs. And the HP Designjet Z2100 produced smaller prints, its HP Vivid Photo Inks and 8-ink printing system assuring consistent high quality. He says:

“My digital art printed just like on screen using HP Designjet technology. I was really wowed by that,” adds Funderburgh.

Versatility for design

Funderburgh’s detailed art can be tricky to accurately reproduce on different printing materials. The HP Designjet L25500 Printer, designed to print on a wide range of media, was up to the task. When matched with HP PVC-free Wall Paper, Funderburgh felt he was getting the true look of traditional wallpaper.

Prints of Funderburgh’s designs were also wrapped around objects, including boxes and a mannequin. For such challenging applications, the HP Designjet L25500 Printer used with HP Air Release Adhesive Gloss Cast Vinyl assured the perfect fit with no loss of quality.

Funderburgh was left impressed by the ease of it all. “All I needed to do was send the files, and they did the rest. The application of it was a dream,” he says. That left Funderburgh more time to work on what matters most—his art.

The HP Designjet L25500 Printer enables Vasava to experiment with new ways of exhibiting art, but HP printing technology can also inspire artists like Funderburgh to think beyond the gallery—to envision new pieces that artists themselves can promote to the general public.

Versatility for design

Funderburgh’s exhibit produced with HP Designjet printing technology has allowed him and Vasava to attract an influential audience. While it’s nice to set the trend, Funderburgh sees another plus—pushing the limits in the realm of environmental impact.

The HP Designjet L25500 Printer uses water-based HP Latex Inks that require no hazard labels and no special ventilation.1 The inks also produce odorless prints,2 and HP PVC-free Wallpaper printed with HP Latex Inks meet the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard for low-emitting products.3 All this can help to create a pleasant environment in the print room—and the gallery. Funderburgh explains:

“It’s not just about print quality.
It’s about having options
for the art and the environment. ”

1 Special ventilation is not required to meet US OSHA requirements on occupational exposure to VOCs from HP Latex Inks. Special ventilation equipment installation is at the discretion of the customer—no specific HP recommendation is intended. Customers should consult state and local requirements and regulations.
2 Some substrates may have inherent odor.
3 HP PVC-free Wall Paper printed using HP Latex Inks is listed in the GREENGUARD product listing for low-emitting products and is tested to the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard. The print is neither GREENGUARD nor GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified. The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) authorized standards developer that establishes acceptable indoor air standards for indoor products, environments and buildings. See www.greenguard.org . These prints also meet AgBB criteria for health-related evaluation of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions of indoor building products.
