Inkjet Print

Inkjet has become an established part of the art market in the last decade. Even the collections of the Tate, the MOMA and Guggenheim include inkjet prints.

The artist creates an image with the aid of a computer, and after a process of proofing and colour-matching, the digital file is sent to a high-precision, professional inkjet printer. Using pigment-based archival inks (fade and water resistant), the print head fires a fine mist of droplets – 64,000 to 165,000 droplets per second – delivering exact amounts of pigment to dense, heavy paper.

Numbered and signed, each print gets a touch of uniqueness on its own.

The artist will oversee the finished artwork themselves, and might screenprint a glaze over the top, hand paint or collage onto the prints, or apply finishes such as gold leaf or glitter. Numbered and signed, each print is a unique artwork in its own right, with the same longevity as a silkscreen print. Once a limited run of prints is produced, the digital artwork is destroyed to ensure exclusivity.
