As creative minds have produced various configurations of work throughout history, they have also invented multiple art reproduction techniques in which to achieve their desired designs. Over the centuries artistic utilities have evolved and expanded their uses among the inventive community. Stretching from methods such as giclee, lithograph, serigraph pairing, and sculpting, to portraits made with oil paints, and charcoal materials. The possibilities are limitless as artists all over use traditional styles for their new creative engineering.


Since the early eras of art reproduction many names have achieved their places among the history books by changing, creating, or perfecting specific techniques. A major influential icon, Leonardo Da Vinci, seemed to have been born with a natural talent in creating art. His growing curiosity both for art and the mechanics of the world surrounding him is what defined his style. Da Vinci combined his knowledge and talent to contribute to all foundations of innovative expression that laid a path for later artists to experiment with human and technological sketching styles.


Paint materials transitioning from oil paints to water coloring has also been a revolutionary method of art reproduction used by numerous designers including Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet, both of which were French impressionists. Oil painting was used throughout Europe by many designers to give their work an organic texture and look, since traditionally the materials where crushed by the artists prior to being used to paint. Another style that was used was water coloring. It was almost translucent until applied to the canvas surface which gave the final piece radiant value, such as those found in Van Gogh and Monet's work.


Continuing to progress with imaginative components resulted not only in classicism categories of art, but also in a rebellious expression of art reproduction during high risk economic situations. During one of the most threatening time frames in history, World War 2, art design took a turn from a structural showcase to barrier breaking abstract expression.  As Nazis ran off Europe's enthusiastic artistic minds to the United States, emotions began to clash with styles. Having no desired outline, artists such as Jackson Pollock displayed work that caused a viewer's emotions and political preferences to change.


Following the rebellious stir that abstract expressionists created, more modern generations that began to surface in the world turned to serigraph as means of art reproduction. With access to new technology in the 1960s art was able to be composed by using a stencil technique. For a piece to be made using this style it must first be applied to a transparency that is placed upon a screen that is covered with emulsion and laid to dry. Then it's exposed to UV light that passes through clear areas causing polymerization. The design is then washed clean and ready to be seen by viewers.


These are only a few techniques in which artists have used to express the creative side of their equilibriums. Moving on further into the future, new waves of generations shall invent more innovative styles with traditional methods as their starting foundation.  This progressive growth throughout the art culture can only motivate and inspire one's inner imagination.
