Our worldwide community of art lovers have voted for all art that hangs here. At Democratic Gallery the people rule. Not an elite. After all, history has proven that democracy is the best way of running the world. Why should the art world be any different?
Extraordinary photographs require extraordinary paper. We print on 170g Munken Polar, a Swedish paper, and 180g Scandraft, a German paper, depending on the print. It’s smooth surface with crisp white shade gives an exclusive, yet natural feel. The paper is age-resistant. We focus on quality and sustainability throughout our business. Our papers are eco-labeled with FSC (responsible forestry).
Sizes & proportions
After curation we thoroughly examine each high resolution photograph provided by the photographer, both technically and visually. The photographs are available in one of three proportions: 1:1, 2:3 or 3:4. If a photograph isn’t available in a certain size, it is either because it did not meet the technical requirements for that size or that we just made artistic choice. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see our size guide.
In a small town south of Stockholm two brothers make our frames with love. We have chosen neat frames to let the photographs stand out. The frame strips are 1.5 cm wide and 2 cm deep for all frames except the 100x140 cm frame for which the frame strips are 2 cm wide and 2 cm deep. Plexiglas has the same feeling as glass and makes the delivery lighter and safer. Metal pins on the back for a tight fit. The frames have two brackets and can be used for both vertical and horizontal photographs. The back board is made of special carton that ensures longevity of the art. Please remember to remove the protective film on both sides of the plexiglass!
Gallery walls is a great way of building a story and visual impact. Do you like straight lines and symmetry or do you prefer a more unorganized feeling? Black & white or colour punch? We have, together with our curators, created gallery personal and unique walls with different stories and themes. Ready to go on your wall or to check out for inspiration!
