DESCRIPTION: SHAG’s limited editions introduced in Budapest are produced using the silk-screen (serigraph) printing method. Serigraphy for additional color depth, saturation, density, and texture are a perfect match to SHAG’s painting style.
He is collaborating with Kolibri Art Studio atelier in Los Angeles for decades for unparalleled quality at enormous sizes for always a small, limited edition of 200 serigraphs only. Anywhere from 10 to 25 colors (some colors are printed twice for optimum quality) with hand color-separation, required 2 months to print since it is very labor-intensive to complete these unique editions. His media choice is always the US-made, 100% rag 2 or 4-ply “Rising Museum Board” brand, acid-free, thick archival paper, only with 5cm margins left outside the live area.
For the finish, SHAG requires a very expensive UV matte clear coat application made for silk-screen printing for preserving the extra longevity of the serigraph print.
FRAMING INFORMATION: Custom made 5cm wide, white Italian lacquered wood frame, with 2cm wide orange colored inner frame. This framed serigraph comes without glass, which is not necessarily due to the size and the serigraph nature since already a UV satin varnish was already applied for longevity. At this stage, the display is approved by the artist. If requested we can place a 2mm art-glass over the image.
