Questions and Answers
Are there any originals left?
If the original artwork is still available, its size and pricing will be shown on the main page of the artwork.
What is a Silkscreen?
The principle of silkscreen printing is push-through. A fine mesh of silk, polyester or steel is stretched over a framework. The screen is then (usually) provided with a photosensitive layer that is exposed by means of a position film. The dark areas on the positive surface are washed away during development so that transparent areas are created on the screen, through which the ink is pushed through. A screen printing has much more brilliant colors than, for example, offset techniques. The UV inks are full of pigment and are applied so thick that, after drying, the structure of the ink can still be felt. The resulting relief effect shows more or less that it is a real silkscreen print. A true silkscreen is experienced as authentic in art.
What is an Art-Giclée?
The word Giclée comes from the French verb “giclet” which means “blasting or spraying”. With this technique high-quality inks are applied in different color layers on special art print paper or canvas. The Giclée originated in the United States in the late 1980s. The Giclée art print is a new and contemporary print medium that meets the highest demands placed on graphics by artists, museums and art collectors. As a result, the Giclée art print has conquered an equal position between the more familiar traditional graph techniques such as etching, screen printing and stone lithograph. Several museums in the world exhibit Giclées instead of the original artwork.
