LAS VEGAS, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter Lik, world renowned for capturing the most beautiful places on earth, has just added to his massive portfolio with the release of 13 new, exclusive images from his recent travels to Europe – available to the public as of Wednesday, June 24. The Classical Age Collection, already highly sought after by fans and collectors around the globe, is the result of weeks of "endless shooting" in breathtaking locales such as Prague, Tuscany, and Venice.
Lik, who has family ties to the continent across the Atlantic, had long-dreamed of capturing its essence and aesthetic appeal through his lens: "My parents were born in Europe and I've always been fascinated with my ancestry," stated the artist. "As soon as I got off the plane I felt a strong connection with this magical place. Classic cobblestone streets, the echoes of the church bells in the distance... I couldn't put my camera down. I was addicted. This is a trip that I'll never forget. Europe's beauty will never leave me."
To accompany this highly anticipated release, Lik has also unveiled three new LIK ELEMENT PACKS: Venice, Classical, and Tuscany – themed mini-collections highlighting poignant scenes from the artist's European tour. Plus, two additional Open Edition prints have been released, exposing the brilliance of Venice: San Marco and Floating City.
The Classical Age Collection is currently available through all LIK Galleries and may be viewed in detail at LIK USA's custom microsite, europe.lik.com.
