WHAT IS GICLEE?


Giclee is a term invented for the procedure of creating fine art prints through a digital supplier using inkjet printing. The word “Giclee”, which is based on the French word “gicleur” meaning “nozzle”, was originated by a printmaker named Jack Duganne. It was created to represent inkjet based digital prints that were used as fine art and to distinguish the customary industrial “Iris proofs” from the fine art prints produced on those same kind of printers. Originally alotted for fine art prints produced on Iris printers with an operation invented early in the 1990’s, the term “Giclee” has since stood for any top quality inkjet print.

Abstract (61)
Abstract
Abstract art in general means art which doesn’t represent objects in the genuine world. It is art which is not a true interpretation of an object or form. Utilizing color and shape, this interpretation can vary in numerous ways. Simplifying or exaggerating an object deforms the natural state of it and creates an entirely distinct look. There are three styles that stand out from the many abstract art styles. Cubism is an analytical method used to abstract forms in which the subject’s primary geometric solid is painted. Neoplasticism is a style where it is believed that the duplication of actual objects is not true art; that art should be a representation of the perfection of life. Primary colors and lines, vertical and horizontal, were the only perfections to these artists. The third style is abstract expressionism. With this style, the painter expresses his personality by using spontaneity.
Contemporary (683)
Contemporary
Contemporary art is art that has been recently created. Basically, visual art produced in our lifetimes is contemporary. When art ages from when it was first produced, it no longer holds the contemporary status. It then would be classified as historical. In principle, contemporary art is art created now, in present time. As long as it is produced in present time, any style or genre can be considered contemporary. Music, literature, and film, as well as many types of visual art can have the title of contemporary. There have been many debates though on what can be titled as a completely valid contemporary piece of art and what can’t. Besides what is just debated contemporary or not, arguments these days on what some people call modern art and those who disagree that it is art all together rage on.
Ethnic (122)
Ethnic
In popular culture, stereotypes of ethnicity include a false, over exaggerated, or over simplified representation of the common characteristics of a specific ethnic group in performing arts, music, film, print media, and literature. With the United states of America being an extremely powerful influence on industries of pop culture, a lot of these stereotypes have risen in the culture of North America. Many other nations have adopted these ideas and a lot of these stereotypes are greatly seen in their pop cultures. Ethnic art is a representation of this. Using a specific culture, its ideas, and even the stereotypes associated with it, art is created. Oriental art and Indian art are two examples of this. Using these two culture's ideas and beliefs, art is created expressing their ethnicity.
Fantasy (136)
Fantasy
Magical and supernatural ideas are expressed in fantasy art. Imaginary creatures, settings, and people can be found in this genre. A world that exists in the artists mind is portrayed in his/her artwork visually. Fantasy art is distinct from other forms from its interpretations of legends and ancient myths. Modern time fantasy is also displayed in fantasy art, such as divine interventions, supernatural forces, and other enchantments. Popular features in this genre include sorcerers, fairies, dragons, and other mythical creatures. The main identifying traits are the addition of elements in a setting that’s harmonious within itself. In this structure, the possibilities of the fantastic elements are endless. They could be hidden, overflowing into the real world, only draw the characters into this fantasy world, or totally take place in a fantasy setting.
Figurative (170)
Figurative
Figurative art is art which is obtained from actual object sources. They are by definition, representational. Usually, figurative art portrays the human figure or possibly even an animal figure. Though often correct, this is not necessarily the case. Since the birth of abstract art, the genre of figurative art can be used to ascribe to any style of modern art retaining a solid reference to reality, or the real world. Therefore, painting can split into groups of figurative and abstract, even though abstract art is abstracted from a source that is figurative. However, abstract is mostly used as to describe art that is non-representational – art that has no origination from objects or figures. Figurative art must come from a real source. It must represent a figure or an object in which there is a real world origin existing.
Futuristic (31)
Futuristic
Futurism was a 20th century art movement. Although a nascent Futurism can be seen surfacing throughout the very early years of the twentieth century, the 1907 essay Entwurf einer neuen Ästhetik der Tonkunst (Sketch of a New Aesthetic of Music) by the Italian composer Ferruccio Busoni is sometimes claimed as its true jumping-off point. Futurism was a largely Italian and Russian movement although it also had adherents in other countries. It celebrated the dynamism, speed, and power of the machine and the vitality and restlessness of modern life. Futurism influenced many other twentieth century art movements, including Art Deco, Vorticism, Constructivism, Surrealism and Dada.
Impressionism (24)
Impressionism
The attempt to portray enduring visual effects would characterize Impressionism art. With the disposal of pure, broken color gaining brilliancy and luminosity, impressionism art would usually be painted straight from nature. Open composition, visible brushstrokes, ordinary subjects, unusual angles, and light emphasis and its transforming qualities are some of the major attributes of impressionism. Paintings under this genre neglect to exploit the glaze’s transparency. Artists in earlier times built up the glazes very carefully to create effects. Natural light is very much emphasized and the surface of a painting in the impressionist genre is usually opaque. The reflection of colors from each object to the next is done very attentively.
Photography (291)
Photography
Generally, it is said that someone has to possess an educated eye to truly appreciate fine art photography. Originally, all photography was black and white, or monochrome. Black and white photography went on to rule for decades, even after film in color was available. Mostly this was due to its classic look and lower costs. Now, in modern times, photography in black and white is basically the minority, and color has become the dominant choice. Fine art photography, as well as documentary photography, has become accepted in the twentieth century by the English speaking world of art. A few photographers in the United States of America dedicated their lives arguing that photography should be a form of fine art.
Pop Art (108)
Pop Art
Emerging in Britain in the mid 1950s, and parallel in the U.S. in the later 1950s, Pop art began to influence many artists with its intense visually artistic movement. Pop art, a term used by Lawrence Alloway, a British art curator/critic, is a powerful art movement during the twentieth century. Current mass culture influenced many of the themes and techniques used in pop art, like Comic books and advertising. Pop art has been greatly described as a reaction to the strong ideas abstract expressionism portrayed then, or actually an expansion on those ideas. A wide audience was the target for pop art at many times without any debate of that not being the idea. With its atypical organizational practices making it very hard for some to understand, pop art is deemed to be quite academic. Along with minimalism, pop art is regarded as one of the final movements in modern art.
Primitivism (36)
Primitivism
Primitivism art is a style in which it mimics the art children create or of primitive cultures. It had a major involvement on the outskirts of European society with cultural events, especially with violence, sexuality, alterity (otherness), spiritual punishment, madness, and the disclosure of repressed urges. This style was birthed mainly because a lot of these central ideas connected to minds of early twentieth century European people were linked to tribal culture and practices of pre Christian religion. Rousseau first drew attention to the idea of the “noble savage”. Nature, emotion, passion, mysticism and instinct were some things 18th century culture was losing, he argued. Expanding this idea, The Romantics believed modern society was fading further and further away from its roots, losing connection with its true primitive state.
Realism (275)
Realism
Realism is the portrayal of subjects as they are in real life, with no interpretation or embellishment. Realism opposes creative idealization in favor of accurate perception of outward demeanors. The term realism is also applied to art that may accentuate the ugliness or depraved, in which, it reveals a truth. Realism also pertains to a cultural movement in mid 19th century France. Around mid to late 1800s it was a popular art form. When photography was introduced it sparked this popularity, mainly due to this new visual reference giving people a desire to create things looking objectively real. Unchanged by personal preconception, realism opposed against the inflated emotionalism with its belief in the ideology of a reality which was objective. Many realists pursued the truth and conformity to fact.
Surrealism (155)
Surrealism
Surrealism is an artistic movement which attempted to express the subconscious’ workings. It is distinguished by extraordinary imagery and absurd juxtaposition of the subject matter. It is very hard to understand and make sense out of most times. The randomness of objects creates a visually ludacris idea. Freudianism was a major influence to surrealism. Surrealism is a dedication to the assertion of the imagination that is exposed in dreams, completely free of convention and conscious reasoning. During the 1920s and 30s, the movement became very dominant. It was practiced internationally with numerous different styles of expression. Dali and Tanguy were two great surrealist artists. They utilized a dream world sense of space and symbols inspired by the subconscious.
