Artist Statement


The World is a painting about information overload. It depicts the world as swirling information that is always changing, often inaccurate, while somewhat illuminating. It is expressionistic information.

  • The $60 11"x14" print (1 of 16 panels) is one of the sixteen panels as shown above, examples are to the left. Panels will be shipped to collectors at random but duplicate panels will not be sent within the same print order. There is a limit of five panels per order.

  • The $1200 11"x14" (set of 16 panels) includes one of each of the sixteen panels.

Prints in the 11"x14" editions are full-bleed, there are no white borders. They should be framed to the edge without a mat and handled with care.

  • The $600 20"x24" and $2400 30"x40" prints feature the entire image as shown to the upper left. For these prints, our quoted dimensions are for the size of paper containing the images, not the printed image itself. We do not alter the aspect ratio, nor do we crop or resize the artist's originals.

One-third of the proceeds from the sale of these prints benefit Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.

Cooper-Hewitt presents compelling perspectives on the impact of design on daily life through active educational and curatorial programming. It is the mission of Cooper-Hewitt's staff and Board of Trustees to advance the public understanding of design across the twenty-four centuries of human creativity represented by the Museum's collection.


Paula Scher | See All Editions


For over three decades, Paula Scher has been at the forefront of American graphic design. She has been a principal in the New York office of the distinguished international design consultancy Pentagram since 1991. Scher began her career as an art director in the 1970s and early 80s, when her eclectic approach to typography became highly influential. In the 1990s, her landmark identity for The Public Theater fused high and low into a wholly new symbology for cultural institutions, and her graphic identities for Citibank, Bausch + Lomb and Tiffany & Co. have become case studies for the contemporary regeneration of classic brands. Her recent architectural collaborations have re-imagined the urban landscape as a dynamic environment of dimensional graphic design. Scher is the president of the Alliance Graphique Internationale and a member of the Design Commission of the City of New York. She is a member of the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame and a recipient of the American Institute of Graphic Arts Medal and the Type Directors Club Medal. Her work is represented in museums all over the world and she holds two honorary doctorates in graphic design.
