What is a multiple?

Series of art objects that are identical commissioned and produced by an artist in accordance with his idea, usually a limited edition that is specifically made for the purpose of selling. Multiples have been said by many to be the most reasonably priced and accessible contemporary art out there in the market, fun and value for money. They are brought together by their lack of unique nature that's usually regarded as a vital prerequisite in artwork.

Mosaic

Mosaic is the process of creating images using many different pieces of colored tile or glass. It can take hundreds placed closely together to build an entire work. The pieces are organized like puzzles, with each piece being part of the whole picture.

Shock Art

Shock Art is a movement which incorporates disturbing images, scents or sounds to provoke a shocked reaction and experience in viewers. Viewed by critics and proponents as social commentary, either negative or positive, the art form seeks to use taboo, obscene or outrageous components.

Monotype

Refers to a printmaking that is made by painting or drawing on a nonabsorbent, smooth surface. Historically, the surface was an etching plate of copper, but these days, the surface can vary from acrylic to zinc or glass. Image is transferred to a sheet of paper where the two are pressed by use of printing press. The process creates a unique print called monotype. The initial pressing removes most of the ink.
