Peter Lik Alternative
Peter Lik has developed a niche market for his photography prints, one that requires deep pockets in order to obtain his prints. While his images are certainly commanding and worthy of a high price point, it doesn’t mean that it is reasonably obtainable for the rest of us – or even necessary to pay such a price for a high quality art piece. Luckily there is a Peter Lik alternative.
My personal philosophy with my artwork is to offer a premium product alternative at a more reasonable price, and not the highly premium prices you pay for a Peter Lik piece. In the art world, you still get what you pay for, but it need not be stratospheric. This is where my alternative to Peter Lik pieces come into play:
I realized years ago that the ultimate expression of my work was having premium prints of my art produced. My goal was to utilize the highest quality prints and materials to ensure a competitive alternative to the highest priced prints available from Peter Lik and others. The process of vetting and searching for such a printer took me a few years, but ultimately I found 2 different printer companies to partner with that absolutely bring the artwork to life. This was one of the biggest steps in creating art prints that rival and can be an alternative to a Peter Lik piece.
Print Style and Options
Now I am able to produce these unique print pieces that absolutely jump off of the print and grab attention. The materials and process allows the print to appear to be almost 3 dimensional in it’s presentation. The special print surfaces that are used for my prints reflect light and create a glow in the print that makes it appear as though you are looking through a window when viewed in a bright area, or when directly lighting the print. This effect is something that Peter Lik was known for in his prints, and sought out by me when choosing the printers for my artwork. In the end, it creates a very special viewing experience.
My artwork is now available in 4 different options: Paper prints that are printed on a special metallic paper, Metal prints (ready to hang), Acrylic facemount prints (using special metallic paper, and also ready to hang), and Acrylic facemount prints that are framed (also using special metallic paper, ready to hang).
