Quality print & framing is integral to experiencing Jai Sol art.
Each unique piece is meticulously printed and housed in a hand made frame to compliment and enhance the aesthetic.
QUALITY PRINT AND FRAMING
Jai's creations are explicitly crafted to come alive in print.
Jai's unique creative process, infusing handmade art with computer software allows him to manipulate digital printing technology and fine-tune his art for the best replication.
FINE ART PRINT
Jai Sol Artworks are printed using specialised processes that enhance the artwork and showcases qualities and features, offering the viewer the most optimised experience possible.
We print on high-quality, grained fine art paper using the process of Giclee.
Giclée printing offers both a softness and richness of colour, represents the artist's original digital work. The process involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high-quality art paper or canvas. The image is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original work. The digital art is fine-tuned to complement the fine art paper, further ensuring fidelity to the original. Our prints are fade & colour shift resistance of up to 200 years.

Framing is an essential part of experiencing Jai's digital crafted artworks. Our frames are hand-selected by the artist to bring each piece to life. Jai's creations are beautifully placed within handcrafted Italian frames and ornate enclosures.
Limited edition artworks are housed in a range of frames recommended by Jai Sol. Our selected frames are chosen to enrich the artwork and cater to a host of environments. Jai procures materials, colours, textures and finishes for each frame that complement the finer details in his work. In some instances,
Jai aims to generate a mood that allows the art to breathe and, in others, use the frame to enhance the concept in the art.
Six key features of our range of frames available for limited edition works.
The shade, tone and overall colour of framing will only add value to the artwork. Jai hand-selects his colours to complete each piece.
As Jai's pieces convey an array of textures in print, it is vital to frame the art with surfaces that subtly contain similar textures.
It is crucial to provide collectors and buyers of Jai's art with a high-quality product, durable in multiple environments. Each material, from the frame to the glass to the finishings, are made to last.
All Jai sol artworks are covered in the highest quality non-glare, high definition glass. Each pane is manufactured by acid etching one or two surfaces of the glass, providing uniform, evenly diffused surfaces for high-resolution applications. Non-glare glass disperses reflected light, allowing the user to focus on the transmitted image.
Certain pieces of art will require additional elements of framing, including slips being the larger frame. These additions add another layer to the structure and are only used to add gravitas to the art.
mounts and finishings
Jai's framed pieced include a range of finishes and fittings to suit the collectors and buyers' requirements for displaying their art. Our expert framers will assist with selecting the correct solution for hanging, displaying or storing the art.
For years, Jai experimented with print, often adapting his work style, the materials he used, and other elements in his art to suit the print's surface, the ink used, and the replication method. He understood the dynamic between the ink and canvas or paper and how integral it was to use specific techniques in the creative process to highlight and showcase features or elements in the art, no matter the quality of the surface material.
He gained a substantial amount of knowledge on surface materials, i.e., canvas, fabric, glass and paper,
during his apprenticeship years as a traditional fine artist. Jai used a vast range of pigment-based oil and acrylics to paint on canvas and experimented with the colour, brush strokes or daubs to add textures and to generate light and depth by burning distressing the canvas. He learned the relationship between paint and canvas and manipulated both entities to create effects or specific features in the art. His awareness of these dynamics advanced when he experimented with fine liner pens on paper, charcoal on wax and even spray paint on concrete. No matter the creative material or tool or the surface material, for Jai, an absolute science with a touch of magic was involved in knowing, merging and transcending both materials to generate a
visual experience with and beyond the materials.
With over fifteen years of experience as a self-publishing artist , exhibiting and selling thousands of duplicates of his digitally crafted masterpieces, Jai knows the value of quality replication. Each piece of art is fine-tuned to come alive in print.
Jai's first ever digital work in print made in 1994.
The moment Jai migrated his practice to digital technology and applications, he applied similar principles to his new medium but now, instead of pigments, he had pixels. Instead of canvas, he had a digital file that Jai could print onto an assortment of surfaces. His early experiments with digital printing did not lead to much success or inspiration as the printing technology was undeveloped, less sophisticated to compliment the digital mediums and their capacity. In 1992, software such as paint and photoshop was in its infancy but still had advanced processes to generate dynamic visuals that Jai could not exactly replicate on both domestic and industrial printers. He knew he had to wait for the printing world to catch up before genuinely showcasing digitally created art. Jai didn't want to wait and chose to ignore the surface material in the printing process. He decided to dissect the creative tool, to understand every element of the digital software, its processes, operations, functions and even limitations. He knew that he could manipulate it to achieve whatever visual experience possible if he could understand it, allowing him to express freely as the artists, the creator.
Examples of Jai using surface materials as another element of the art.

Jai invested twelve years studying a series of software and digital applications. As he learned how to use colours and edit imagery throughout this period, he witnessed the emergence of high def digital technology in printing onto multiple surfaces. He also saw the possibility of light projection and art in a three-dimensional virtual space. No matter the surface, the technology or area, Jai continued to experiment and eventually created a unique process in generating his art that can be applied onto any surface, material and look exactly as he intended.
Six key elements to Jai's unique process for optimising prints of his art.
Tweaking the variables in each pixel and merging
them with scanned photographs of traditional
colour and light.
Including scanned photos and hand made replications of rich and subtle textures, overlaying specific area to create depth and highlights.
Fuse the traditional, more conventional way of arranging features with background by layering and merging elements and editing each layer with digital software.
Generating artificial light sources with texture and distortion to create ambience and atmosphere.
Creating 3d models of shapes, objects and patterns to further emphasise areas of the composition and offer a contrast to more natural space
Ignoring the process and injecting my spirit, pain, love, hope, dreams, imagination, and self-awareness into creating and transforming a mechanical process into natural phenomena
