Why My Giclée Prints Are a Must-Have for Your Art Collection

If you've been captivated by the paintings and design work on my website, Rik Barwick Studio, you'll be thrilled to know that you can own a piece of this artistic journey through my Giclée prints. But what is a Giclée print, and why should it be your next art purchase? Allow me to explain.

What is Giclée Printing?

Giclée (pronounced 'zhee-clay') is a French term that means 'to spray or squirt.' In the context of art, it refers to a high-quality printing process that employs pigment-based inks to produce prints that are incredibly detailed and long-lasting.

The Unmatched Quality of Giclée

Color Vibrancy

The Giclée printing process allows for a broader spectrum of colours compared to traditional printing methods. For example, my Glistening Gull and Sea of Second Chances Giclée Print are both striking examples of how vibrant and true-to-life the colors can be.


Imagine owning a piece of art that can be passed down through generations.  Giclée printing inks are expected to last up to 200 years without fading, making them a lasting investment.
