Big Prints, Big Impact: How Visual Artists Are Making Large-Scale Metal Prints Online

Metal prints are durable, versatile, and oftentimes supersized. With metal prints up to 60” by 40” available online and the ability to put together a larger piece in panels, Shop Duggal helps artists and photographers go big for commissioned works and exhibitions. Here are a few examples:

A Metal Print the Size of a High School Hallway

Students at Queens Metropolitan High School (QMHS) enjoy a jolt of color and energy as they pass through the hallway to and from the cafeteria, thanks to artist Michelle Carollo.

Carollo, who has exhibited her bright, exuberant work across the U.S. from New York City to Miami to San Francisco and several other major cities—was commissioned by the New York City School Construction Authority to create a public mural in one of QMHS’ busiest corridors. Duggal consulted with Carollo to develop a unique solution combining several materials, including a base of 13 Vibrachrome® metal prints.

Metal Prints Make Their Way to MIT

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is home to a set of 12-foot-tall metal prints produced by Duggal for longtime client Shuli Sade, who describes the installation, titled “Evolving Formations,” as “a data-driven matrix fusing actual site-specific zoning plan arrangements and fictional landscapes.”

Four Vibrachrome® panels deliver color and architectural design with both emphasis and accuracy for a permanent installation accompanied by augmented reality. Students, staff and visitors at the MIT—along with employees and guests of Boeing, Capital One, and others—enter to a bright, towering art display in the lobby of 314 Main Street in Kendall Square, Cambridge.

NYU, Too!

When Duggal Visual Solutions connected Laurence G. Jones Architects (LGJA) and Jamaican artist Kianne Patrice Hutchinson, the two found a perfect match of architectural vision and artistic style. Collaborating remotely with a Duggal consultant, LGJA and Hutchinson brought a wave of Caribbean flair to the lobby at 145 East 32nd Street in Manhattan, an NYU Langone medical building owned by Meyer Equities.

Hutchinson’s digital artwork comes to life on Vibrachrome® including a five-panel, 20-foot-long piece, with gallery-float framing. The aluminum gives the imagery extra vibrancy and durability, while the Plexi mounts add dimension and contemporary appeal.

A large print always gets people’s attention and draws them into the image. If it’s on heat-fused, long-lasting metal, even better. Order your metal prints today!
