WHAT IS GICLEE?


Artists commonly use the Giclee printing processes to create high end limited edition reproductions of their original artwork. On a per-print basis, a Giclee print is more expensive than traditional methods used to create such replicas, but artists can print and sell each Giclee print individually matching demand making Giclee a very economical alternative for creating limited edition prints. An added advantage of Giclee printing is that the artist can have complete control in all aspects of the image. Alterations, color, size, and what it is printed on can all be manipulated by the artist, along with the freedom for the artist to own and operate the printer as well. Giclee printing has been rapidly growing and becoming the number one choice of fine art reproductions. Many printer and print media manufacturers have been working to improve their product contributing tremendously to the increase in overall Giclee print quality.

Abstract (74)
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.
Animals (25)
Animals
Side by side with human beings, animals were subject matter for the earliest created art ever. To prehistoric artists, animals were viewed as food, but also represented a spiritual, sacred essence. Primal instincts and feelings are portrayed by animals. Throughout history, animals stayed a critical component in all cultures art forms. During the renaissance, the portrayal of animals was disregarded in favor of subjects supposedly higher elevated. This didn’t last long and animals appeared widely again in the 18th century. Animal representation played a major role in the growth of modernism, which commonly pursued subjects distant from anecdotal fables academicism stood for. In art, an animal can simply be the form used as a visual subject matter or it could have symbolism, giving the form of the animal a much deeper purpose for being in the art.
Architecture (75)
Architecture
Architecture can be defined as simply, the art and science of building and structure design. This also includes the design of the complete built environment, starting at the microlevel of furniture creation, to the macrolevel of landscape architecture, town planning, and urban design. Designing architecture involves the skillful handling of space, abstract elements, texture, shadow, volume, and light in which the main goal is to reach an aesthetic end. Works of architecture are commonly viewed as political and culteral symbols and often, beautiful art pieces. The brilliance and visual effect a successful work of archictecture displays is reason enough why so many artists use it as their subject matter in paintings. Houses, castles, buildings, cities, ancient structures and many other architectural works offer an exciting and interesting sight.

Celebrities (116)
Celebrities
Celebrity art is art portraying a celebrity in some form. Andy Warhol is responsible for the idea of a more famous fame and transforming the portrait of a celebrity into a work of art in itself. Dealing with previously popular images of famous celebrities in artistically creative and arousing ways, Warhol, along with many other artists such as Peter max for example, have presented fresh ways to introduce our most adored celebrities as art. Artists create celebrity art in many ways, including painting, photography, illustration, and sculpture. Celebrities are idolized and revered all over the world. It is not hard to understand why many artists choose to make a celebrity the focus point of his/her work. What better way to immortalize an adored celebrity favorite than dedicate a piece of art work to them.
Children (7)
Children
A work of art depicting a child portrays a sense of innocence and unadulterated beauty. Children in art represent a pure image of human nature. Usually, art with children as subject matter expresses delightful images, but occasionally, more harsh visions are portrayed making for a very powerful and dramatic work. Children have been depicted in art since the earliest times and their role in it has not differed much from then until now. Many parents create art or have art created by an artist representing their child. Because of their great adoration for their child, this is their way of immortalizing them. A child in a painting can add a sense of youth and joyfulness and leave a viewer with the feeling of inner bliss. Children are a delicate subject matter and depending on how they are depicted, can portray seriousness, humor, ecstatic happiness, or a somber melancholy.
City (60)
City
Cities are the boiling pots of the world. It’s usually where many different cultures, races, and lifestyles exist together. Quite often, it is where the most popular trends in fashion, slang, technology, social behavior, and suitably, art, begins. So many sources for ideas and subject matter occupy a city that an artists mind and creativity can flourish. Artists can choose from beautiful skylines, interesting people, favorite stores and shops and a number of other aspects of city life. The architecture and buildings alone in cities offer endless subjects for art work. Cities also supply a nostalgic aspect to some artists, in which certain places or things might be reminiscent of personal experiences in there lives. This recollection can be a powerful motivation for creating very meaningful and personal art that many people can usually relate to.
Dance (14)
Dance
Dance is considered an art form to many, so it would only be right that it was a common subject for many visual artists. Dance pertains to movement as a type of expression and social interaction. It can also be in the form of a spiritual or, individual or group performance. Dance can be elegant, controlled, and graceful, or it can be wild, intense, and menacing. Like a painter expresses themself on canvas, a dancer expresses themself through their movements. An artist that captures these movements in their work can depict a beautiful visual expression. The dancer’s flow, movement, and emotion will all be directly paralled in the artists work. Artists can be very creative and portray animals, flowers, and other non-human things dancing in their work. Dancing can bring life to inanimate objects in a work of art and add a sense of livelyness.
Figurative (142)
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.
Flowers (114)
Flowers
Flowers in all cultures symbolize beauty, life, and death, along with many other things. Each flower’s symbolism varies according to each culture and their beliefs. The wide variety of beautiful and exquisite flowers has inspired the creations of numerous visual artists. Due to their diverse and dynamic appearance, flowers have extensively been a popular preference as subject matter. A number of the most illustrious paintings from famous painters have flowers as the subject matter. The sunflower series by Van Gogh or Monet’s water lilies are two great examples. Flowers are not only used as subject matter for one dimensional paintings, but are also subjects of three dimensional sculptures. They are even dried, and then freeze dried followed by being pressed to permanently transform them into three dimensional works of flower art.
House (12)
House
Houses in art are extremely common. Forms of architecture, houses provide varied styles of design with each one possessing its own unique distinguishing features.

The inside of a house can display one’s beautiful interior design or on an emotionally deeper level, express a feeling or a memory. Set in a lush landscape, showing a single room, or displayed in the background, a house can be interesting subject matter to an artist and provide for a visually engaging experience to viewers.
Landscape (369)
Landscape
Natural elements like trees, mountains, rivers, and forests are commonly depicted in landscape art. The sky is included in the scene almost all the time, and weather will usually play a part in the composition of the work. Landscape art traditionally represents the earth’s surface, but other types of landscapes can be used as well to create art, such as the surfaces of other planets. In the early 15th century in Europe, painting landscapes was an established genre. The Chinese are also responsible for an established style of landscape painting called “pure” landscape. A tiny human figure gives scale and welcomes the viewer to take part in the whole experience. With their massive array of colors and visual exquisiteness, landscapes are a favorite among photographers. A powerful essence associated with spirituality and a bond to nature can be felt by a landscape scene.
Monsters/Creatures (7)
Monsters/Creatures
Monsters commonly appear in mythology, horror fiction, and legend. Monsters and creatures were important social concepts. This was because of their association with the unknown. The connection with the unknown made monsters a very significant concept during the renaissance and enlightenment, mainly because Western society started utilizing science and academic disciplines to attempt to grasp the idea of the unknown. Art was a perfect way for people to use monsters. Whether to simply portray a bone chilling creature from ones imagination or to use the monster as symbolism for a certain issue, monsters have been very interesting and affective subject matter for artists. Monsters and creatures usually represent evil and opposition to good, but sometimes it is common for monsters to be portrayed as friendly and nice, most often for children orientated art.
Nature (291)
Nature
Nature’s place in art is just as special as the human figure’s. Landscapes, animals, the elements, outer space, and celestial scenes are all part of nature. It is the natural world and all life that is in it. Nature is one of the first inspirations for early artists, giving them a massive choice of subject matter to choose from – a beautiful rain fall or a dazzling sunset, an animal hunting or one with its young, the skies and stars above or a vast landscape. The list is endless. Its spiritual essence and sacred recognition also make nature a significant subject matter to many. Without man, nature would still exist on being the universe and all its forces and phenomena. Nature creates its own artwork as well. All in nature can be art in itself. Spectacular colors, shapes and forms, composition and layout - all can be found in nature.
Nautical/Marine (37)
Nautical/Marine
Nautical/Marine art is very common. Not just underwater, but all art relating to the ocean or a body of water in some way would fall under this subject.

The sailor and his equipment, along with his ship and the vast sea, reflect our nation’s wonderful heritage and true identity. Forms of this subject of art began at the birth of this country. Not the sailors themselves, but mainly their vessels were the focus of the art. These images, along with images of beautiful shore lines, exotic seascapes, fantastic marine life, and a massive choice of other nautical/marine subject matter, have their own uniqueness that stands out from other kinds of art.
Nude (21)
Nude
The nude in art is classic, universal, elemental, timeless, and primal. It is truly the topic of extreme empathy. Yet, to an artist, that imperfect and delicate body that encases our souls becomes an immortal perfection that surpasses its obsolete physicallity. The nude has grown into a solid genre of art. It portrays people with no clothing, commonly with stylish conventions disguingishing the artistic components of being in the nude from the provocative state of nakedness. Nudity in art is quite common and accepted more than real people being nude in public. A painting or sculpture displaying nudity is regularly showcased in places in public where actual nudity is prohibited. With social attitudes and opinions about artistic nudity changing, conflicts regularly arise concerning art that doesn’t conform to the generally current standards.
People (267)
People
People in art are a widely popular favorite as subject matter for artists. From world famous celebrities to a homeless man on the corner, people can make for a very intriguing work of art. Artists can either capture the essence of a person in a painting or sketch, or go beyond that and make a three dimensional sculpture representing them. Every person is different with their own unique characteristics and distinct stories to tell. These specific details and attributes of a person can be expressed in a work of art and bring out a certain feeling or emotion in the viewer. A person all alone in a painting can have an entirely different feel than a painting with that person in a large group of people. Imagination and creativity is the limit. An artist can capture the true to life form of a regular person or turn them into an omnipotent being.
Portrait (129)
Portrait
Portrait art is an artistic representation of someone where the face and the expression on the face is the main focus.

A portrait would be a composed image displaying a person in a stationary position. Usually, a person looks directly at the artist in a portrait to most effectively involve the subject with a viewer. In the Western world, one of the most famous portraits is Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of an unidentified woman titled Mona Lisa.
Religion (10)

A lot of religious art contains important characters or figures of the religion, symbols of the religion, or stories and significant beliefs of the religion. Sculptures and statues, and architecture also play a big role in religious art. Places of worship are usually adorned with art work of the religion and can even be seen as art themselves.
