DELA Exhibition

You can now find a little bit of Sky Siouki artwork in Bristol restaurant, Dela, on Mivart Street in Easton. Dela is a gorgeous open and spacious restaurant offering a varied and unusual seasonal menu of Swedish inspired food for brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks. The exhibition runs until March 12th.

Dela Exhibition Sky Siouki Artwork

I have three pieces of artwork on show across the main back wall of the dining area. A framed print of Bright Haze, framed print of Cormorant and original painting Shore Song. All are available to buy although not directly through the restaurant, so shoot me an email at [email protected] if you’d like to buy one following the exhibition.

I do also have an ample selection of unframed giclée prints and greeting cards available to buy straight from the restaurant in the small shop space next to the bar. Find a browser full of my prints to your right when you walk in and a varied selection of cards by myself and other lovely Bristol designers on the shelves above.

What is a Giclée Print?

 

This is something I get asked by customers all the time at markets so I thought why not dedicate a little blog post to it.

First off; Giclée is pronounced ghee-clay. The term was coined in 1991 by Jack Duganne to describe a fine art digital print. It’s derived from the French word ‘gicler’ simply meaning to squirt, referring to the nature of inkjet printing.

 

Lustre - Limited Edition Giclee Print Detail

 

So a giclée print is a digital inkjet print but what makes it special is the type of printer, inks and paper used. A giclée print produces the highest quality reproduction of a piece of artwork possible and is made to last at least 100 years.

I am proud to say I print all of my giclée prints myself here in my Bristol home studio. I use a professional Canon printer which has 12 different colours of archival ink to produce perfect colour accuracy and prints made to last essentially forever without fading. On top of this, each print is printed onto heavyweight 310gsm, superior quality etching rag made of 100% cotton, and is acid free to ensure no premature deterioration.

 

 

I often post snapshots and videos of my giclée prints being printed in my studio on my Instagram stories, so give me a follow here if you’d like to see the action! I hope this answers the question sufficiently but please do comment below if you’d like to know more.
