Nava curates and publishes fine art photography posters by contemporary artists. The main output of fine art photographers, limited edition prints, are expensive (generally, starting around $500 per print). Posters are open-edition, printed differently than limited edition prints, and have the artist name and logo of the publisher on the image side. By publishing 1-2 photographs per artist as posters- Nava is able to offer work by extremely talented artists to a broad range of collectors.
Curation at Nava is the process of evaluating fine art based on certain criteria. There are no specific styles or subjects emphasized when we select work to be published. The two most important factors are artistic merit and verifying the artist is alive and well (aka contemporary artist).
