  • ABOUT Arpita Singh

    Described as a figurative artist and a modernist, Arpita Singh was born in 1937 in what is now Bangladesh. She received her diploma in Fine Arts at Delhi Polytechnic and worked for the Indian Government's Cottage Industries Restoration Program. Singh's paintings depict a woman's point of view about everyday life in India. She uses vibrant colours, and her paintings burst at the seams with teeming life forms and objects or motifs like guns, cars, planes, animals, trees and flowers.

    Amongst several other awards and recognitions, Arpita Singh received the Padma Bhushan in 2011. She is married to fellow painter Paramjit Singh and currently lives and works in New Delhi, India.

  • 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 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.
