"The quality of the canvas I use to create and paint my artwork on is of utmost importance. It is for this reason that I choose Fredrix Print Canvas exclusively. I am committed to providing my collectors with a work of art that will withstand the test of time, and Fredrix has the finest archival quality canvas. Being a pop artist, my work features many very vibrant colors, as well as my trademark, 'Art on the Edge,' in which I create art on all sides of the canvas. I can rely on Fredrix canvas to capture the vibrancy and detail to my highest exacting standards."

Fredrix(R) Print Canvas will feature the artist and his works to promote the importance of choosing archival quality artist materials through national art events and cross promotions.

"With Nelson's unique style of art and stature in the art world, it is a great platform for us to reinforce our message of relying on the archival qualities of Fredrix Print Canvas as a lasting surface for fine art."
