About POEMS Art Publishing
- Fresh, modern, innovative Words often used to describe and express the integrity of Poems’ authentic publishing vision, presentation and contribution to design, contract framing, furnishings, and retail markets worldwide. As a unique fine art poster publisher and emerging resource selling to the TRADE ONLY, we embrace contemporary art and artists, intending to purposefully challenge the decorative market with new, distinctive imagery. Poems offers aesthetic solutions as individual as the artists we select, and is recognized for defining trends and inspiring fresh perspectives in the global design market. Poems’ owners’ history includes over 35 years of combined experience working separately in the publishing, design and framing industries before partnering to create Poems as a boutique art company in 1997. Nasser Shotorbani and Laurie Downing share a clear vision and business philosophy: select original artists working in truly distinctive styles, make bold creative choices, be uncompromising in production and presentation, and communicate with absolute integrity. From the onset, Poems brought new decorative trends to the marketplace, including a popular x-ray botanical collection by radiology technician/photographer Steven N. Meyers (now over 100 images strong all exclusive Poems publications!) Poems’ creative, distribution, sales, marketing and operations teams share the owners’ commitment to the artists represented and to accounts served worldwide. By remaining dedicated first and foremost to presenting an original vision, Poems’ influence continues to evolve. We trust you will be inspired by our continuing efforts to produce high-quality, salable imagery and welcome your thoughts, inquiries and suggestions. Many thanks from all of us at Poems!
