Why Fine Art on Metal Canvas is a Superior Choice for Collectors
February 04, 2023
Discover why more fine art collectors are moving to fine art on metal canvas as their preferred medium of choice. Color, clarity, lifetime care, and much more are all factors.
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST ADVANTAGES?
Fine art on metal canvas refers to the process of infusing art into the metal of a high-quality fine art metal canvas, comprised of high-grade aluminum to create a finished piece of artwork. This process is called dye sublimation. Heat and pressure are used to embed the color deep into the metal resulting in a fine art piece that resists fading and UV light for generations.
Additionally, the metal surface creates a unique visual effect. The way the light reflects and interacts with the metal canvas accentuates depth and luminosity within the image unlike any other fine art medium. It creates a sense of dimensionality, making the art appear extraordinarily lifelike — as if you were looking into the actual scene on location.
Another advantage of metal canvas fine art is the color can be infused in 4K high-resolution with the widest color gamut available. This allows for exacting color accuracy and vibrancy. It surpasses all other traditional fine art methods executed on paper or canvas.
The metal canvas provides a durable and long-lasting base for the artwork. Metal is resistant to fading, warping, and discoloration, which makes it a suitable choice for fine art that will be displayed in high-traffic areas — such as in a corporate office — or exposed to the elements on a balcony, patio, pool area, or any other outdoor space.
HOW ARE WORKS CUSTOMIZED?
Fine art on metal canvas can be displayed as a single canvas or customized in a series of metal panels that are hung together to create a larger fine art installation. The largest high-grade, fine art metal canvas available is 8 ft. in width x 4 ft. high. However, this medium can be displayed in diptych, triptych, or even polyptych to create very large works up to 16 ft. x 8 ft. All sizes can be customized to fit the intended space and budget. Other popular sizes for large, multi-panel installations are:
Fine art on metal canvas is becoming more popular among fine art collectors for several reasons. It is versatile and has a lot of potential for creative expression, and it can be a great option for those looking for a durable and long-lasting piece of art.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF FINE ART METAL CANVAS WORKS
4K High-Resolution and Extreme Color Accuracy — The ability to infuse fine artwork in high-resolution and the widest color gamut available results in extreme color vibrancy and the most accurate, true tonal variations are unmatched from the brightest whites to the deepest darks of any medium.
Depth and Luminosity — The way light reflects and interacts with the metal surface gives extra depth and luminosity to the fine art, making it appear extraordinarily lifelike.
Resilience— Fine art metal canvas is a durable and long-lasting base for the artwork, and it is resistant to fading, warping, discoloration, and UV light. This makes it ideal for high-traffic areas and even spaces exposed to the elements.
Versatility — Fine art on metal canvas can be used in a variety of settings, from large open spaces to smaller, more intimate environments.
Durability and Resistance — High-grade metal canvas can withstand harsh environmental factors like humidity, moisture, temperature, and light. It can be hung indoors or outdoors without any loss of material integrity, and zero color changes — even in UV light. They are also highly scratch resistant. This makes it very suitable for exterior public art installations.
Cost Effective — Fine art photography on metal canvas is more cost-effective than traditional canvas or oil paintings and has a significantly longer lifespan. Metal canvas substrate testing benchmarks a lifetime of the art piece as lasting generations with minimal care.
Metal Canvas Floats 1 in. Off the Wall — This give a timeless look and is accomplished by either the float mount or inset metal frame on the back of the artwork — dependent on size. All works under 36 in. have a float mount. All works 36 in. and above will have an inset frame mount. Either works beautifully and securely.
Lightweight, Easy to Move and Quick to Install — Fine artworks of any size can be hung in minutes. You can choose either fine art wire hanger or French cleats to attach to your wall. Both are secure and the choice is yours.
Easy to Care for and Clean — Fine art on metal canvas needs very minimal care. Simply feather dust as needed. What could be easier?
