The evolution of art prints on canvas

In the past, owning a piece of fine art was reserved for the wealthy. Order were placed to an artist to do a family portrait, for example (it is called a commission). Hand-made oil paintings were expensive and time-consuming to produce, even a simple reproduction took time and effort. Still, today, try and employ an artist in your country and commissioned a painting, you will be surprised how expensive it can easily become. Notwithstanding the artist's capabilities, the mere hours spent on it makes it a gift unaffordable to most, we are talking about a few thousand bucks each.

Canvas prints of fine art can be your best bet, and the cheapest option as well, to reproduce artworks.

Canvas prints are the future of fine art wall

Painting reproductions are a thing of the past. Using oil paint, and artist spend hours drawing and painting to try and reproduce a famous artwork for thousands of dollars? Come on...

Replace the oil paint by inks and the artist by a giclée printer, and there you have your artwork made in mere seconds. And better than most painters can actually do, as the printed reproduction of a piece of art is an exact replica. An artist is limited by his skills, and motivation, the time on his hands and the raw material at his disposal - and the reproductions not always that great. Those of you who bought cheap art copies in China, know what I'm talking about.

A canvas print is always a perfect copy of an artwork.

The benefits of art prints on canvas

Not only are canvas prints more affordable than hand-made oil paintings, but they also offer several other benefits.

For one, they are incredibly durable and long-lasting. Unlike paper prints, canvas prints are printed on high-quality canvas material that is designed to withstand the test of time.

  • We use a high-quality thick cotton canvas, smooth to the touch, at 320 grams per square meter (GSM), that is pretty thick and soft. Our special canvas is pre-primed with a gesso layer, for accurate colors rendering.
  • We employ a UV resistant varnish imported from the US, which is a great way to protect your canvas from scratches and other damage. It is designed to be highly durable and is applied in a thin coat that is barely visible. This varnish is also resistant to UV rays, meaning it won't discolor over time, and will protect the inks from fading. It is also easy to clean and maintain, making it a great choice for as a long-term solution to protect your prints.

Additionally, canvas prints come in a wide range of sizes and styles, making it easy to find the perfect great big canvas for your space.

Fine art canvas prints are an exact replica of any artwork

I am a professional artist painter as well, and let me tell you, painting reproductions of classic art is a pain. The most difficult part, besides being a seasoned painter, is to get all the details right.

Take a difficult painting to reproduce, like The Golden Rule by Norman Rockwell. With so many faces and details, it is a nightmare to reproduce with oil paint. For any artist, it means about a month of work, at least, if not two - and the artist has to be good, not everybody can do it.

But if you decide to buy The Golden rule today from my print shop, you will get it tomorrow, and perfectly imitated, with the right colors. Using a mechanical mean of reproduction, not only you will get a perfect result each time, but it is no more difficult to print The Golden rule, than it is to print Matisse, Blue nude 2.

I am all for paying attention to the fine details, that's what makes the difference between a regular painting studio and mine.
 
The term museum quality refers to the best quality we can come up with, that approaches the quality done in a museum.
Museums sometime give passes to artists to come and copy masterpieces in the finest details. 
To do so, one needs to be in the presence of the real painting, and mimic the brushstrokes to the tiniest details.
 
With a print, not such problem, everything is always perfect. It is, after all, a photography of a painting, and we know for a fact that it was the invention of photography that caused the death of academic art.

Choosing the perfect art print on canvas

When choosing an art print on canvas, there are several factors to consider.

First, think about the room and decor where the printed artwork will be displayed. It is important to consider the size of the artwork in relation to the space it will occupy. Make sure the artwork is the right size to fit the space without overpowering it. Consider the colors and materials used in the room and how the artwork will fit into the overall aesthetic. The artwork should be a reflection of the space it occupies, but should also be unique and interesting.

You want to select a piece that complements the existing style and color scheme.

Next, consider your personal taste and style. Do you prefer abstract wall art or more traditional pieces?  Think about the colors and tones that you find most pleasing and look for pieces that feature those colors. If you are looking for a statement piece, consider a large canvas art print with bold colors and shapes. If you are looking for something more subtle, consider a smaller piece with softer colors and shapes.

The quality of the art print is crucial. Our art is printed on high-quality canvas and has been treated with a protective coating. This will ensure that the colors remain vibrant, and the canvas is durable. Additionally, look for a piece that is printed with archival-grade inks, which are designed to last for a long time without fading.

Finally, take some time to research different artists and artwork to find a piece that speaks to you.
