alta: the creative studio where analog art is reimagined for a digital world



Elevating Fine Art Printmaking

Elevating Analog Fine Art Printmaking

alta is inviting artists to blend new processes with familiar mediums to create original Elegraph prints with unique, bas-relief texture. Inspired by elevating traditional printmaking we offer artists the freedom to explore new art technologies, with the assistance of our art production team, who are mediators between analog and digital.

During a journey of developing technology to help preserve and protect the world’s cultural heritage, we’ve recognized the potential in translating our processes for contemporary art, via fine art printmaking.

True to the nuances of traditional printmaker and artist relationships, alta broadens the creative possibilities of printmaking. Artists can experiment with new ways of realizing their vision, while making their work accessible to a more diverse collector base with fine art Limited Editions.

Elegraph Digital File Creation

Digital editions and NFTs for analog artists

The art world is experiencing a digital revolution. Right now, most digital art content is created by digital-native artists. But “born digital” is not the only way to participate in the revolution.

Collaborating with the capable hands of the in-house alta team of master printmakers and digital creators, artists who prefer to continue to work in traditional media can expand their collector base with Elegraph-D, collectible, digital editions available as NFTs. These might be static, animated or 3D. Imagination is the only limitation.

“What makes the Elegraph interesting to me as a printmaker and a painter, is that I can really look at geometric forms through another dimension, and that dimension really comes through a real and immediate way.”

Amir Hariri - Artist & Printmaker, NYC

Museum Digital Edition and NFT Services

Digital editions and NFTs for museums

The alta technology also opens the possibility to create new digital works based on existing analog paintings. alta uses museum developed and tested ultra-high resolution 3D color laser digitization to capture both the colour and geometry of the surface of a painting with unprecedented precision and accuracy. Our creative team uses the resulting Art Digital Master File (ADMF™) as the starting point for digital iterative works.

The multi-track ADMF™ data enables ‘sampling’ of analog paintings, a practice set to become an important part of the digital art revolution. Just as up-and-coming musicians give a nod to influential predecessors by including short sections of significant tracks in new music, digital image artists can now do the same. alta’s creative production team can work with artists and museums to create and curate unique digital content.

Art Production Specialists

We realize that the worlds of art and technology each have complex nuances and unique languages and processes, which can be difficult to navigate without experience in either place.

To truly mediate between the two, our team of Art Production Specialists are both artists and engineers. We’re as comfortable picking up paintbrushes and palette knives as we are stylus pens and digital tools.
