Sanji Karu operates and manages Skar Image Lab which is a Fine Art Print Studio for Visual Artist primarily inkjet printing, film scanning and retouching. He produced prints and scans for personal work, exhibitions, commercial work & portfolios. He provides a personalized service for his clients ensuring that their requirements are met. The advantage of working with him is that you are communicating to the person that is going to produce your work, which is critical to achieving your desired outcome.
Sanji knows your work is personal and a lot of time went into producing it. Hence he gives his clients the time to discuss their work and understand their requirements. He takes great care and attention to detail when producing your work, using antistatic & cotton gloves when handling prints and negatives, acid free tissue paper for packing prints, anti static natural hair brushes for cleaning prints, grounded antistatic film cleaner & a climate control studio space.
The main reason why Sanji started Skar Image Lab is that he really enjoy working with Visual Artists, having conversations & discussions about their work. This is reminiscent of his time at Unitec where he studied toward a Bachelor in Design & Visual Arts majoring in Photography & Media Arts. Sanji really enjoys the technical and conceptual side of producing work and being part of the creative process.
