alta is inviting artists to blend new processes with familiar mediums, to create original Elegraph™ prints, which are characterized by 2.5D texture. Inspired by elevating traditional printmaking, we’re a fine art print studio like no other. We’re dedicated to offering artists the freedom to explore new art technologies, with the assistance of our art production team, who are mediators between physical and digital mediums.
During a journey of developing technology to help preserve and protect the world’s cultural heritage, we’ve recognized the potential in translating such new technology into contemporary art, via fine art printmaking.
Staying true to the nuances of traditional printmaker and artist relationships, alta seeks not to change the printmaking world, but to broaden the creative possibilities of printmaking. With alta, artists can experiment and embrace a new way of realizing their vision, while making their work more accessible to a larger and more diverse collector base through fine art editions.

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 in their own right.
Art21 is a 21-year-young, nonprofit organization with a mission and values that resonate deeply with the faces behind alta. Their dedication to living in a more creative world, through the works and words of artists, has influenced our purpose and that of many others.
Alta was a proud sponsor of part of Art21’s 2018/2019 Extended Play series, which provides exclusive, unmediated insight into the lives of today’s leading and upcoming artists. It is a privilege for us to have supported their work, which enables artists to air their stories to audiences around the globe. It is also an honor to have helped inspire future generations of artists.
