Graphics ranks next to painting and sculpture as one of the branches of artistic arts. It includes techniques that allow you to duplicate a previously prepared template on paper or fabric. Artistic graphics is a subset of the graphics department and is characterized by the fact that it covers all printing techniques apart from industrial printing, i.e. printing. This means that in the case of creating artistic graphics, the process - from design, through making a matrix to making prints, is concentrated in the hands of the artist.
According to historians, the graphic artist appeared in Poland in the second half of the 15th century in today's Wrocław. These were woodcuts that served as book illustrations inspired by the copperplate engravings of the German artist Wit Stoss. He made them during his stay in Krakow. Over the centuries, printing techniques have changed dramatically, and great artistic graphics have become available to the average person.
The Graphics Department organizes auctions where you can buy works of many eminent Polish artists. From graphics representing the contemporary art trend, we had the opportunity to host works of such names as: Wojciech Fangor, Zdzisław Beksiński, Jerzy Nowosielski, Julian Stańczak, Jan Lebenstein, Edward Dwurnik, Jan Dobkowski, Stanisław Fijałkowski, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Jan Tarasin, Henryk Stażewski and Rafał Olbiński . Additionally, we regularly offer graphics by such artists as: Mojżesz Kisling, Leon Wyczółkowski or Zofia Stryjeńska. Our department works with both recognized artists and those who are just starting their adventure in the world of art.
Our offer also includes artistic graphics of former masters of great renown, such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Salvador Dali or Pablo Picasso. Of course, these are only replicas, but thanks to this, at a relatively low cost, you can equip any interior with, for example, the highest-quality artistic craftsmanship. The graphics were made with the use of classic printing techniques, such as: woodcuts, aquatints or etchings, and they perfectly imitate the original works of art. In this way, we are pleased to promote the legacy of the most famous artists in the history of the world.
Artistic graphics is a way to disseminate art to people who are unwilling or unable to spend huge amounts of money on traditional works of art in the form of paintings and sculptures. This role is important because it allows everyone to admire art, learn art and experience it, regardless of the wealth of the wallet. That is why the graphics department is so important to us - its educational role helps promote art throughout Poland.
