So what is a GalleryPrint?

What do we mean when we are talking about a GalleryPrint on ARTFLAKES? A GalleryPrint – the official term is “AluDiBond-Kaschierung” by the way – differs from a poster or an art print that is put into a nice frame: A GalleryPrint has no frame.

Instead the art print you have chosen is mounted onto a massive aluminium plate and then – you can choose here as well – either laminated (matte or glossy) or fixed with acrylic glass. An ultraviolet protection is added, so that we can happily guarantee you a long lasting brilliant quality of colour! Depending on the size of the picture one or two aluminium hangers on the back of the GalleryPrint ensure that you can put it on the wall immediatley.

Doesn’t it sound good?

Artwork pick of the Week: “Autumn sun”

This week we again rummaged around the picture box that is ARTFLAKES and fished out the charming illustration “autumn sun” of the German artist Judith Clay.

Judith was trained as a ceramic painter and later on studied literature – her love for drawing and telling stories is reflected in her enchanting illustrations that look like they were just taken out of a fairy tale.

“I like it best when I can please others with my pictures”, she writes in her profile. We are convinced that this is working quite well!

This week we invited Tiffany Bozic, an artist living in San Francisco, to join us for a virtual coffee and a couple of questions. Having grown up on a farm in Arkansas, Tiffany got to know all kinds of nature at an early age.

And that is clearly visible in her artwork: Her paintings are crowded with animals, plants and natural scenes. By mixing her studies of nature with her dreams and thoughts, large-sized paintings result, that often appear kind of surreal.

Furthermore, the artists is inspired by the illustrations of John James Audubons and Erich Haeckels, a German zoologist of the end of the 19th century.

And what else did she tell us?

Artwork pick of the week – Kristina Sabaite

“My uncle has a moustache Big and Black moustache And he looks so seriuous I can´t stop laughing…” – with these words lithuanian illustrator Kristina Sabaite explains her artwork “Moustache“, which now can be found and bought at ARTFLAKES.

Moustache have become trendy again – not only with young guys living in Berlin who want to revive the 80s – and are printed on posters, coffee cups or t-shirts.

We fell in love with the picture of the little playful girl and her fake paper moustache immediately and thus have chosen it for our first “artwork pick of the week”
