WE WANT

YOU.



GENERAL PUBLIC is currently accepting artist submissions for paintings. I formed my company, General Public, with a view to bringing good art to more people. As a long-time art lover and collector, I became fascinated with the concept of reproducing paintings using 3-D technology because I believe the artist’s work should be shared by as many people who wish to own it and not just enjoyed by one collector. Unlike the current method of printing, which is merely a flat poster version of a painting, our 3-D prints are almost identical to the original with all the texture and articulation created by the artist. I like to think of the originals like sculpture molds, and that the prints are as valuable as the original painting. Given the time and energy that goes into making paintings, I also believe that there should be more financial upside to each painting for the person who created it, and not just a single sale minus agent’s fees.

1. ARTIST DIGITALLY SUBMITS ARTWORK.



General Public is currently open to all mediums of 2-D works of any size and on all substrates. This includes painting, drawing, collage and photography. Please do not submit sculptures or video art. Along with the individual piece/pieces you would like to submit for printing, please provide a link to your gallery’s website, your website or social account where we can see your body of work. This helps with the selection process.





2. GENERAL PUBLIC ACCEPTS PIECE.



If we like your work and are considering it for publication, our art advisor will contact you to discuss our process and answer your questions.





3. ARTIST SENDS ARTWORK.



The piece is then consigned by GP and shipped to us to be reviewed. For reasons of liability, we ask you to ship your work at your cost. We prefer canvases to be sent rolled where possible to make shipping easier and as inexpensive as possible. If the piece is approved for production, our team will reach back out to you with a legal agreement before the work is sent for scanning. If the piece is not approved, it is sent back to the artist at our cost.





4. GENERAL PUBLIC SCANS ARTWORK.



Our scanning technicians uses the highest quality hardware and software to carefully record every detail of each piece. Your work will be handled with exceptional care. We ask for 45 days with the original piece so that we are able to give each piece the necessary time and attention it takes to make a reproduction with the most accurate color and texture possible.





5. GENERAL PUBLIC RETURNS ORIGINAL PIECE TO ARTIST.



After the work is scanned the original piece sent back to you at our cost.





6. ARTIST CAN STILL SELL ORIGINAL.



You are free to sell, show, or do whatever you want with your work with the exception of making prints of the accepted work. Our goal is to give each artist an additional revenue stream outside of the sales of original artwork. The artist receives a royalty in perpetuity for every sale of a print.



7. ARTIST RECEIVES ROYALTY ON EVERY SYNOGRAPH SOLD FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER…



We sell the synographs made from your original work on our website and through our retail partners. Artists receive sales reports and royalty payments quarterly.
