Wholesale Wildlife Art

There are two main reasons that people buy wildlife art. The majority of people buying bird and animal art do so to hang in their home or office. A minority of people buy wildlife paintings or prints as an investment.

Of course, some people buy for both reasons!

Original wild animal and bird art is sometimes purchased as an investment particularly if the artist is well known, as this adds value to the artwork. Originals can be purchased direct from the artist or from art galleries and dealers. Some galleries and dealers specialize in wildlife art.

Also purchased as an investment are signed Limited Edition giclee prints of animal and bird art. Limited Edition art prints generally go up in value. Many high-street galleries now sell Limited Edition prints, and often have large catalogues available.

The giclee process involves scanning the artwork extremely accurately (scanners used cost over sixty thousand dollars) and printing using a specialist giclee print machine, special paper and archive quality inks. The prints made in this way are described as museum, or archive quality, and if cared for correctly will last more than one hundred and fifty years.

One of the finest artists of wildlife alive today, Canadian artist Bateman, sells his work as Limited Edition giclee prints, but this practice has been controversial, as some art critics claim that it devalues the work.

However, most pictures of wildlife art are bought as posters or unlimited edition giclee prints. While these images don't go up in value, they bring great joy to many people who buy wild animal and bird art to hang on their walls. What matters in choosing wildlife art to look at, is simply . . . what you like looking at!
