While old, dilapidated farms are beautiful in and of themselves, it sometimes takes an artist to point out how individual parts of a building can be just as stunning; Parvez Taj does that with his White Barn Collection. Born in Canada and based in Los Angeles, California, Taj takes historic old barn doors and transforms them into rustic works of art using photographs, software and UV inks.

Inspired by the coastal lifestyle of Southern California, the White Barn Collection combines history with modern technologies. According to his website, Taj as "dedicated his career to making beautiful art accessible." Due to the nature of his chosen canvas, each piece in the White Barn Collection is as unique as a fingerprint. Varying in age and texture, the canvases and art techniques used are environmentally friendly.
