Hiya is an exhibition of giclée prints by artists Hussein Madi, Samir Sayegh and Mohammad El Rawas.
The word Giclée comes from the French word for “to spray” and refers to the process of making fine-art prints from a digital source using a high-quality inkjet printer. It connotes an elevation in printmaking technology and requires proper training and years of experience to perfect.
Images are generated from a high-resolution digital camera or scanned and printed with archival quality pigments onto various archival-quality substrates, including canvas, fine art, and photo-based paper.
The Giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction and is capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for the reproduction of conventional fine art, photography, and digital art, keeping all the tonalities and hues of the original piece. As such, images reproduced using the Giclée process are used in museums, libraries, and historical databases, and many Giclée prints can be found on display at the world’s leading museums, including the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim.
The Giclée process is ideal for artists who want to create a limited number of reproductions with a superb quality print.
The exhibition has started on 4 of March and will last till 7 MAY, 2022 so do not hesitate to visit.
