Niagara Detroit art prints and posters

The artwork of Niagara Detroit is instantly recognised for its colourful, comic book style women. Often armed with guns and spouting heated, provocative words, Niagara’s women are feisty, outspoken and drop-dead gorgeous.

Niagara started out at art school in the University of Michigan in the 70s before going on to form two bands. Destroy All Monsters, known as DAM to fans and Dark Carnival formed with the drummer and guitarist of the Stooges both went on to achieve international cult status. Throughout her musical career, Niagara produced all of the album artwork and promotional material for her bands and other acts.

By the 1990’s Niagara was displaying her work around galleries and cafes in Detroit and by 1997 gained national recognition for her art following two sell out shows at the Detroit Gallery. By 2006 she had worldwide fame with exhibitions in the Manchester, Sydney and Tokyo. She also collaborated with Vans designing the artwork for 7 unique pairs of trainers - the collection was launched in Paris.

Niagara Detroit recently hit the headlines again as the inspiration for Kate Moss’s first stint as honorary fashion editor for British Vogue in March 2014.

More about framing

Exploded-product

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
