ABOUT THE ARTIST...

PAINTED BY METRO

Above: Metro posing with his collection of Eco-pillows, Eco-wall decor and the very fist tote which launched his fashion collection! 

 
 
 
Yes, we know that Metro did not attend art school...no Yale, The Art Institute of Chicago or RI School of Design for this racehorse! Nor did he gain the love of painting as a young colt.

 

In order to channel his boundless energy, despite being prematurely retired due to a crippling leg condition, owner, Ron Krajewski,  taught him how to hold and use a paintbrush. The rest, as they say, is history...

 

Metro’s bold free style strokes create a palette of exquisite fanciful swirls and layers of texured color and has the desired effect of “washing the dust of daily life off our souls’.  It's obvious that Metro can't mix his own colors, but what he achieves with a paintbrush (in his mouth) is both exceptional and sublime.

 

We are 'believers' and thus proud to present the Painted by Metro Eco-decor collection  of decorative pillows, wall decor and fashion totes- with  many more things to come!

 

In addition, we're excited to be associated with New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program through our contributions from the sale of Metro Metero's products.

 

 

 

 

DECORATIVE  ECO-PILLOWS

Metros' Eco-Decor Pillows

 

A fantastic 'piece of Metro' as a home decor accent!

 

Rich colors printed on 'cotton' soft Eco-sateen, a 100% recycled from plastic bottles textile, paired with a vibrant, solid 

organic cotton back. The edge piping frames these unique Metro painting reproductions.  

 

Each pillow is filled with another Eco product - soft fiber fill also made from domestic recycled plastic bottles!

The images are printed with an Earth-friendly process, conserving energy, creating no waste water or VOC's (airborne contaminants).

 

A full 18" x 18"size, they are fully washable and made in the USA,

Metro's pillow collection helps support our effort to restore domestic production.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ECO-WALL DECOR PANELS

PRESENTING

Metro Meteor Eco-Wall Decor Panels

Uniting Eco and Visual in a New Way

 

All the beauty and color of Metro's original artwork reproduced on Eco-textiles wall decor panels. The Eco-printed surface captures all the elements of the paintings and has no reflective quality, enhancing depth of color and texture, well beyond traditional canvas reproductions.  

 

Our unique DreamTeKtm 'wrap-around' frame system adds another new element: Eco-fabric wraps around the back to the front and tucks neatly in behind the printed art panel creating a 3/8" 'border'. The result; a streamline, contemporary look with an accent of color.

 

The low profile, only 1" thick, looks amazingly elegant compared to bulky frames or canvas wraps.  

 

The combination of domestic Eco-textiles, our dimensional printing process and wrapped frame system presents a new alternative to traditional wall decor. Our Eco-printing uses fade resistant UV digital inks, conserves water, contains no VOC's (air borne pollutants) and is safe for the environment. 

 

This product is handmade in the USA and helps rebuild domestic production. 

 

Size: 24" x 24"

Weight: 6 pounds

Textile front: printed Eco-Sateen

Textile back and wrap: Organic cotton

Hanging system: sawtooth hardware

ECO-HARLOW  TOTES

Metro Meteor's NEW "Harlow" Eco-Tote

 

Traditionally, fabric totes are a shell with a separate lining. A new process of bonding the lining to the shell creates a sturdy, streamline 'fabric' canvas and printed Eco-twill 'shell' combination; the result is new and exciting, featuring a  deep 5" organic cotton side gussets, adding depth to the 14" x 14" frame.

 

​The Harlow Tote can easiliy become your favorite multi-use carry-all tote. It's beefy and sturdy, with unique, unexpected color combinations of solid and contrast trim. 

 

And, best of all, it features Metro Meteor's amazing art on front AND back. Beautifully detailed with an inside pocket, the surface is wipeable /washable and it's fully  made in the USA.
