What is an Artist Proof?

At least, in theory, artist proof is a print impression taken to see the current state of printing in the printing process as the artist works on the plate. A proof is capable of clearly showing an incomplete image often referred to as a trial impression or the working proof. However, an artist proof in the modern practice describes an impression of finished work identical to the numbered copies. 

Glicée printing

Giclée printing is a computerized technique for reproducing artwork using a digital file and a special ink jet printer which uses acrylic, oil paints or ink. This reproduction process results in an extremely high level of color and image accuracy.

Superflat

Art movement founded by Takashi Murakami and is greatly influenced by anime and manga. The term is used to refer to the flattened forms in the Japanese animation, graphic art, fine arts and pop culture as well as the shallow nature of Japanese culture. It is an art movement that is self proclaimed and regarded as post modern.

Art Brut

A French term that means "raw art". It was invented by Jean Dubuffet in an attempt to describe and explain naive and graffiti art made outside the normal fine art's academic tradition. He termed it as "outsider art", made by loners, prisoners, the mentally ill and other groups of people considered marginalized. It is made without thought to presentation or imitation.
