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.

Artwork by Jeff Koons
Figuration Libre

This is an art movement equivalent to the French Bad Painting and the Neo-expressionism in Europe and America. This art term was coined by Ben Vautier and Fluxus. Robert Combas, Francois Boisrond, Herve Di Rosa and Remi Blanchard formed the Figuration Libre group back in 1981. This art term can be interpreted as "free style" art.

Metalcut

Metalcut was a technique for relief printing. It existed primarily from about 1450 to 1540 in Europe. The technique used thin metal plates. One method cut or hammered away parts which should not print. A second used engraving to show white lines on black background.

Neo-Geo

Known by Neo-Geo for short, this movement uses geometric objects and shapes to create abstract artwork as a metaphor for society. It is inspired by several different styles of 20th century art forms such as minimalism and pop-art. Starting in the 1980's, Neo-geo was in response to the industrialization and commercialization of the modern world.
