Art Prints, What is a Print?

What is art? Who decides it? These are very complex questions that have been asked for centuries; and, to this day are still being discussed by artists, curators, galleries, philosophers and so on. At LAUX we believe that art is not just something to be understood, but rather something to be enjoyed. And we know you like to enjoy yourself.

Our mission is to create a link between amazing creators and people who would enjoy their work, and we believe that the best way to do so in our present times is to make art prints. 

So, what exactly is an art Print? Well, a print is obviously not an oil painting, a sculpture, a piece of pottery, or jewelry, or a drawing. Although prints could be made from all of these things; they could also incorporate prints within them.

A print is a graphic image that has been duplicated one or more times. This is one of the advantages printmaking has over other art forms: the ability for the artist to create, with relative ease, multiple copies of a single work.  This is the reason we decided to produce art prints; because these multiple copies, called prints, allow a work to be seen, enjoyed and owned by many people rather than just one.   In this way, our customers can benefit from very affordable prices, while getting a high-quality product, and creators can reach a broader audience.

All of our prints are reproductions authorized by our makers, printed on FSC Certified  acid and lignin-free matte paper, with deluxe pigment ink. The result is a high quality, beautiful print with vibrant colors. Check out our catalogue and discover the works of very talented young creators.

Make your spaces as unique as yourself. Select the one that fits your personality.
