Why do Acrylic prints look so good?

Hey Art Fare! I'm obsessed with acrylic prints. They look so luminous. This treatment is perfectly suited to a large portion of my photography, where color and vibrancy are what the images are all about. So what is the big deal? Well, acrylic is a high gloss coating that can go on the top of a photo. This gloss enhances the color and gives the image a sense of depth. It truly makes the image brighter and more dynamic. I'm completely smitten with the effect and think it makes such a statement.

The Lumas gallery in New York City is what really turned me on to printing under acrylic. When I walked in and saw their artists photography presented this way I was floored. I had no idea photos could look so bright and vibrant. You can get lost on their website looking at all of the beautiful prints, and I highly recommend it! 

I decided to look into it! With a little research, I found the company the Lumas galleries use. Whitewall, which I have written and spoke about many times! It's a company based in Germany that produces fine art printing. After my first print with them I have been hooked. Are they cheap? No. Are they amazing? Yes. These are statement pieces. When I walk into a room with one of these babies in it, I smile every time. And that feeling hasn't gone away for the past few years. In fact, almost everyone who has been to my home comments on my acrylic. I'm taking that as a sign that the world would like some of these beauties for their very own.

Now available in the Art Fare Shop: acrylic prints in 2 large and dynamic sizes. These prints are mounted on an aluminum panel which means there is no visible frame. Just a clean and modern, yet solid look. They have a bracket on the back for super easy hanging. Honestly all I use are two nails to hang them, nothing fancy at all.

I believe different types of photography are best presented in certain mediums. Therefore, not every image in the Shop is available in acrylic. Many of my images taken with film years ago look much better as fine art prints honestly. So have fun and check them out! Here is a sneak peek to some of the new imagery available in acrylic and in the Shop now. These were all taken on my most recent trip to the Maldives, and they are guaranteed show stoppers in any space!
