About Michael Pape Giclée Limited Edition Prints
Giclée is a state of the art digital technology that has made it possible to create a fine art print that is extremely difficult to distinguish from the original painting or drawing. Giclées are available on archival acid free watercolour paper and or canvas. Michael Pape Giclées use pigment longevity inks and have a lifetime warranty. Each limited edition giclée is numbered and hand-signed by the artist. Read More
Giclée - Regular Edition is a regular signed and numbered limited edition, based off the artist proof.
Giclée - Artist Proof Edition is a signed and numbered limited edition. An Artist Proof is the process of the artist manually matching the original painting colour to the limited edition giclée print colour. For example the pupil of an animals eye may be slightly darker on one Artist Proof than another. Each Artist Proof is slightly different in colour. An original if you will. Many artists charge a 20% premium because of this. Artist Proof Editions are usually limited to 10% (20 prints) of the Regular Edition (200 prints) for example. They are the most sought after limited edition by collectors.
Giclée - Conservation / Publisher Proof Edition are what charities offer for Fundraising.
I created this painting of a large male Polar Bear as if he is on a stage and all the world is his audience. He has kept his human audience spellbound for countless years due to his power, majesty, as well as vulnerability. Polar Bears need ice to hunt seals (their main food source) and with longer delays for ice to form due to climate change, many Polar Bears are going without nourishment for longer and longer periods. I want the viewer of this painting to feel a sense of hope, contribution and empowerment to the future of this icon of the far North, stepping from the dark and into the light.
It is the innate intelligence, emotion and sensitivity in all animals that I inspire to recreate in my paintings. I have personally met all the animals in my paintings. I strive to collaborate with you, through my paintings, in a greater mission, to be a voice for animals and the natural environment in which they live. – Michael Pape
