Limited Edition Serigraphs/ Prints are a series of identical prints of artwork, commissioned by the artist. Restricted to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces, each print is numbered and signed by the artist, establishing its authenticity. As the number of prints are limited, signed prints of acclaimed artists hold immense value, and can be investment-worthy, just like original works of art.
There are different techniques in printmaking, including offset printing, digital printing, giclée, lithography and serigraphy. Serigraphy, or silk screen printing is considered one of the most sophisticated techniques. In this process, thick, opaque colours are passed through the screen, creating prints with vibrant colours and beautiful textures, that make the artwork look like a painting.
Works by any artist are limited, and prints are a perfect way for acclaimed artists, to make their art available to a larger number of people. This makes limited edition prints popular amongst new art buyers as well as seasoned art collectors.
