100% RISK FREE PURCHASEOnline Color Consistency
At Art Evolution, we strive to make sure that all artworks displayed on the website are shown accurately.
For precision results, we use the ColorMatch RGB Profile.
However, it is possible that due to the make and model of both your computer's video card and monitor, the colours shown on your computer may not be exactly the same as the actual artwork.
Clearly Art Evolution has no control over this scenario and assumes that when you purchase a piece of art that the artwork ordered may not be exactly the same as seen on your monitor/device.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, simply notify us via email and you may return the artwork for a full refund or it can be exchanged.

While every effort will be made to deliver your artwork within the stated time lines, Art Evolution cannot accept responsibility for delays caused by shipping companies, timeline for the custom crates to be built or any government agency such as customs.
WHAT ARE GICLÉE REPRODUCTIONS?The What
The contemporary giclée has become a valuable addition to the fine art world. "Giclée" is a French term, which means to spray ink. The pronunciation of giclée is "zhee-clay."
All About the Detail
Giclée have a higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic colour range is greater than that of a serigraph. Giclée are created by a method of printing in which the image is scanned and digitally enhanced on a computer to match the original fine art. The image is then sent to a high-resolution inkjet printer, which sprays millions of microscopic droplets to create an image with smooth tonal gradation. These unique jets are able to vary the width of the ink stream to as small as 1/100th the width of human hair and this is generally regarded by the art industry as the highest quality reproduction available.
True Colour Matching
The entire process in the creation of the fine art giclée is an artistic endeavour within itself, requiring a great deal of patience and skill. A professional quality giclée starts with a high-resolution digital photograph, which is then painstakingly colour matched to the original artwork.
Art Evolution employs experts in the field of scanning, colour matching and printing on high quality canvas, thereby creating an exquisite product that does not need to be framed under glass.
Yes, They Are That Good
Today, artworks reproduced using the giclée process are of such high quality that they can be found on display at museums around the world, including The Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.
