About the different collections:

The ''In the air'' Miami & New York print and painting collection / The images in that collection were taken in the air by the artist himself on many private helicopter tour over those cities during the summer of 2015. Viewing major urban areas from the sky really changes the subject's perception. They are unique to the exact place and time that they were taken in terms of angle, lighting and cropping.

Some of the images in that collection were selected, printed and painted over by the artist and will be the main artwork displayed his exhibtion. The technique used by the artist for the realisation of those pieces is unique; The photos are printed on a stretched canvas wich is mounted on a wooden frame, like a regular painting. The artist then work over the photo with paint, plaster, epoxy and other materials to increase the detail level and bring out the colors.

The ''Beyond Boudaries'' collection / This collection was the one used in the last show by NG (june 2015). It's composed of several images from all over the world, putting the emphases on how connected our world actually is and how the urban sprawl and transport network stretches far beyond boundaries. There is a limited amount of 15 images available for backers to choose from, wich shall all be printed only once.

About the printing process:

High qualiy print on photographic paper / This printing process is the most simple offered but also the cheapest. Even at a low price, the quality is not compromised. The colors are stunning and the edges are sharp. The printer and paper used to make those prints are industrial, professionnal grade equipement that requires a lot of knowledge and competence to operate.

  • Low price, high quality; This material is not very pricy yet it's still of a great quality. It keeps the resolution and colors of the image very neat and well detailed (much more than regular photo paper) and has a semi-glossy finish.
  • Very verstatile; This printing process makes a very versatile product that can be framed, laminated or simply pinned to a pin up board.

High qualiy print on photographic paper mounted on ¼'' Sintra PVC board / These ''ready to install'' artistic photo prints are made of a high quality photographic paper wich is then glued to a PVC panel of ½'' with epoxy glue. Once the glue has dryed up the edges of the panel are sandblasted for a smooth finish. At the end, a scratch/graffiti proof high gloss varnish is applied to make the piece much more durable and resistant.

  • Great value; Stunning finish and resistance at a very reasonable price.
  • Easy to install/hang; Two little hooks on the back of the Sintra PVC board makes it easy to hang the piece(s) on any wall.

Lithography on aluminum panel / The lithography on metal, more precisly aluminum is a very complicated and unique process. It requires a lot of equipment and knowledge to achieve but has by far the best look and finish of any process currently available on the market. Other than being the most esthetic process of them all, it's also the most resistant.

  • Sleek and lightweight design; Printed on a thin aluminum panel of 1/16''. The aluminum is then glued to a smaller ⅓'' Sintra PVC board allowing the edges of the artwork to stay at 1/16''.
  • Colors and resolution fidelity; The process used to print with this material allow the maximum fidelity of colors and detail level on the market. Your print is going to look just the same as it looks on you computer screen, even better !
  • Weather resistant; This material bare any weather from a cold nothern winter to a sunny southern summer, without fading, bending or scratching.
  • Easy to install/hang; Two little hooks on the back of the Sintra PVC board makes it easy to hang the piece(s) on any drywall.

Risks and challenges

When it comes to art exhibits, there are always a lot of risks and challenges. From production the actual artwork to managing the event in every little details. If anything unexpected happens, two thing are more important than any others and have to be the main focus; The respect of the deadline and never compromising the quality of the work.

Aside from being a huge production challenge, these kind of events need a lot of preperation and experience to host. A good thing is that this is not my first time around. Over the years I have acquired the resources I needed to now take this project forward! I am planning to work as dedicated and as hard as I did for my last shows wich were all success.
