kre-eyt was formed to celebrate and promote the sometimes unheralded, yet super talented creatives spread across the globe. Our aim was not just to identify these individuals but to give them a platform to showcase their work. We wanted to form a real creative and culturally diverse hub of talent, building a brand full of ideas, personality and ambition.
The team at kre-eyt spent large amounts of time short-listing individuals we believed would be perfect for this venture, before contacting them and sharing our vision. This approach has culminated in a real mixture of styles from a whole host of different skill-sets, from both hand and vector illustrators, 3d artists and designers through to tattoo artists. Each bringing their own unique vision and background, with nationalities ranging from South America across the globe to Asia.
Phase one of the kre-eyt project is this online store, selling prints from our fantastic team. To really allow each individuals heritage and style to come through, we set a totally open brief for this, which as you'll see has resulted in some fantastic pieces that really vary from artist to artist.
We have linked up with the UK’s leading fine art printers Spectrum, who will be responsible for all of our print and production. The Brighton based outfit already have their work exhibited in galleries and museums all over the world, so this latest collaboration is set to be a great match for both sides.
When weight is an issue because of framing or transportation 3mm Dibond (aluminium composite) is a good alternative to aluminium. Weighing less than half that of aluminium this material is composed of a dark plastic core with a thin layer of aluminium coated on each side. This archival mounting solution is perfect for very large pieces and touring exhibitions.
Subframes are advised for hanging larger mounted prints and Perspex mounts. A subframe is an aluminium profile attached to the reverse of the mounted material. This is then hung onto a batten fixed to the wall. A subframe moulding will give the impression of your artwork “floating” from the wall. The moulding is approximately 20mm wide.
Giclée, the French word for ‘spray’, refers to the ink jet printing process used to produce these beautiful archival standard fine art prints. We use professional, fade-resistant Epson inks and high quality papers, resulting in beautiful, fully archival prints with incredibly fine detail.
