About

We curate and publish fine art photography posters by talented and practicing artists. All posters are offset printed on premium, archival paper.

navaposters.com

The Big Idea

Limited edition prints- the main output of fine art photographers- are expensive. Not everyone has thousands of dollars to spend on art.

Nava collaborates with a select group of talented artists to publish premium posters. By publishing 1-2 photographs per artist as posters, Nava is able to offer work by top contemporary artists to a broader range of collectors.

Nava is a small team of curators based in Chicago, LA, and NYC. We spent the last six months carefully selecting the artists/photographs and proofing the posters. Everything is ready to go.

50% of the profits on every sale go to the artists.

Why Kickstarter?

We are launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund our first major production run of the posters. The printer is paid upfront for all the posters we produce. By backing this project- you are pre-ordering a poster.

Jean-Vincent Simonet, 19”x24.83” (image + 1” border)

Jean-Vincent Simonet's practice fuses analogue images, digital techniques, collage and montage with remarkable fluidity. His work is permeated by a sense of overload, exuberance and entropy.

Jean-Vincent Simonet (b. 1991) graduated from ECAL in 2014. He is based in Paris and Zurich where he juggles between commissioned photography, editorial and personal explorations.

Risks and challenges

The posters have been proofed (we have seen what they look like printed). We are eliminating some risk by only shipping within the U.S. If we are able to hit the campaign goal, we plan to go to print and ship the posters.
