  • ABOUT Madhvi Parekh

    Born in 1942 in Sanjaya, Gujarat, Madhvi Parekh is a self-taught artist. Her paintings depict her childhood memories, where the images of fantasy and early days lend a surreal, dreamlike quality to her work. From 1970-72, she studied Fine Arts in Paris on a scholarship from the French Government.

    Parekh’s works are inspired by rural India, but her style retains a contemporary twist. She has been exhibiting her work all over the world since 1972. In 1979, she received the National Award from the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, soon after which she completed a Residency fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She received the Whirlpool Women’s Achievement Award in the field of Fine Art in 2003.

  • ABOUT Limited Edition Prints

    Limited Edition Prints are a series of identical prints of an artwork, commissioned by the artist. Restricted to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces, each print is numbered and signed by the artist, establishing its’ authenticity.

    Because the number of prints is limited, signed prints of acclaimed artists hold value, and can be investment-worthy, just like original works of art. Christie’s and Sotheby’s – the world’s two most renowned auction houses – hold auctions exclusively for prints. A Pablo Picasso print sold for US$1.7 million in 2010!

    There are different techniques in printmaking, including offset printing, digital printing, lithography and serigraphy. Serigraphy, or silk screen printing is considered one of the most sophisticated techniques. In this process, thick, opaque colours are passed through the screen, creating prints with vibrant colours and beautiful textures, that make the artwork look just like a painting.

    Works by any artist are limited, and prints are a fantastic way for acclaimed artists, to make their art available to a larger number of people. This makes limited edition prints popular amongst new art buyers as well as seasoned art collectors.
