Park West Gallery is proud to introduce a brand-new artistic medium—one of the most technologically advanced Park West has ever brought to the art world.

It’s called a sculptograph.

Sculptographs bridge the gap between graphic works and sculpture. They are remarkable three-dimensional works where the artist is able to bring together different colors, textures, and layers into one solid sculpted work of art.

The sculptograph process enables artists to work in a digital format with a special 3D technology, allowing them to choose different paintbrushes, do color separations, and completely control the creation of every aspect of their work in real time.

The end results are fantastic sculpted artworks with amazing variations in hue and depth.

Several artists have already embraced the sculptograph format. It was first used by artist Tim Yanke to create a new take on his acclaimed “Peta Louthias” artwork, adding a remarkable amount of depth and dimension to his canvas of rainbow-colored butterflies.

The debut of the “Peta Louthias” sculptograph was made doubly significant by the fact that it was also enhanced by “Moving Canvas,” Park West’s new augmented-reality (AR) program, which allows viewers to unlock new features of the artwork through a special app.

“Historically speaking, collecting the first example of a new medium is a huge opportunity for collectors,” says Park West Gallery Director David Gorman. “‘Peta Louthias’ is the first of its kind and will always be important for that reason.”

Renowned artists Ron Agam and David “Lebo” Le Batard have also begun creating original sculptographs, both new designs and clever translations of some of their most iconic imagery. And more Park West artists will be announcing new sculptograph editions in the very near future.

Sculptographs are a fascinating innovation—sculptures you can hang on your wall—and they are available exclusively through Park West Gallery.
