Factum Arte started working with Anish Kapoor, Boris Savelev and Marc Quinn from the time it was formed. Sixteen years later we are still working extensively with each of these artists. The works we have made for them and the innovations that have been achieved are all clear examples of the way Factum Arte works.
With Boris Savelev, one of Russia’s leading photographers, we have formed a close creative partnership. This has involved building a flatbed printer capable of overprinting in perfect registration, developing a new approach to digital colour management, preparing gesso-coated aluminium plates, working on wax finishes and editioning Boris’ extensive archive.
Similar innovations have been developed a whole host of artists from around the world who have been attracted by Factum Arte’s unique approach to the transformation and mediation of information and the bridges we have constructed between new technologies and traditional artisanal skills. These artists include: Marina Abramović, Mariko Mori, Subodh Gupta, Carlos Garaicoa, Lara Baladi, Urs Fischer, Manuel Franquelo, Jan Hendrix, Michael Nyman, Antoni Muntadas, Gabriel Orozco, Grayson Perry, Paula Crown, Carsten Höller and many others.
