There are more than 1,500 arts and photographs, in limited edition, numbered and signed by big names in the art market.
What is the advantage of buying a limited edition?
The main advantage is the price. As it is not a unique work, the price is more affordable. An original work can cost more than R$50,000.00 while a multiple, numbered and signed work starts from R$590.00 and it is possible to pay in up to 12 installments.
Our editions are cataloged, which means that the artist and DemocrArt guarantee the cataloging of the works.
Most works of art are painted by artists on cotton canvas, which is prepared to receive the paint and then stretched onto wooden frames. It is in the chassis that it takes shape to be hung on the wall.
DemocrArt uses cotton canvas in its prints that follow the highest standards adopted by museums around the world. They receive treatment against fungi and bacteria and on their surface an acid-free composition with neutral pH, thus leaving their appearance equal to a recently finished original painting.
This guarantees a durability of up to 150 years if kept indoors and protected from direct sunlight, care that any work of art also requires.
The cotton paper used in our works is a special line for fine art accepted by museums and galleries, and presents the best in performance, longevity and acceptance in the art market. Works printed on cotton paper must be framed and protected with glass.
The photographs are prints on cotton paper, but with the typical shine of photographic paper. Our works always use a special line for fine art accepted by museums and galleries, and present the best in performance, longevity and acceptance in the art market. Photographs must be framed and protected with glass.
In the Brazilian art market, “methacrylate” has become synonymous with the technique of mounting photographs embedded between two sheets of cast acrylic (face-mounting), ready to be hung on the walls, dispensing with any other type of frame; Mounting in methacrylate produces a sensation of depth and three-dimensionality in photographs, and is highly appreciated in contemporary art galleries.
We think that in some cases several works are better than just one. With this in mind, we developed the classics (only available in our physical galleries), 40x50cm works already framed to be collected or given as gifts.
AFTER ALL, WHAT IS MULTIPLE?
Multiple is a work of art made in series. As it is part of a print run of identical works, the multiple is cheaper than a single work, making it more accessible to the public.
A LITTLE OF HISTORY
The multiple emerged at the end of the 1960s, when some artists began to create works of art with the intention of reproducing them on a large scale. It was a new concept of modern art, the result of the technical reproducibility that the industrial era began to allow, opposing the hitherto dominant concept of a single work.
The Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely, one of the first to adopt the multiple, believed that the myth of the single work would disappear: "Artists cannot ignore the advantages that the technique offers us. We must be coherent with our time."
The emergence of the multiple was also linked to an essentially political concept: the democratization of art through the multiplication of the work of art, that is, production costs would be diluted in the circulation, allowing a greater number of people to have access to a cultural product . The new concept contradicted art considered elitist, limited to museums and collections, an idea that excited many artists.
The multiple work proliferated through different artistic movements of the 60s and 70s; pop art, optical art and minimalism artists appropriated the new concept in their work. Although the multiple did not eliminate the aura of the unique work of art, as Vasarely thought, it definitively incorporated itself into the artistic production of the 20th century.
