We are always on the lookout for emerging artists of diversity across New Zealand and within the Pacific community.

If you feel you fit within the realms of our criteria - get in touch here.

Art & Realism practices inclusion, supporting and involving Humans from a range of different backgrounds. To be eligible for sign up, you must fit within the realms of our diversity criteria; NZ, Māori, Pasifika, LGBTQIA+, disability, mental health and underprivileged communities.


By default we print all of our art & photography prints on either one of two; finest smooth or textured Enhanced Matte acid-free art paper (210gsm white) AND a smooth or textured Cotton Rag (270gsm warm white) with archival inks for rich colour, details & longevity.

Our printing partners offer a premium quality and gallery art finish that will make you proud to showcase your new art piece in your home, workplace or special space.

Yes! Our framing is an optional choice on all of our art and photography prints.

Please note we do not offer framing on downloadable Digital Prints, Canvas Prints, Free Prints or Original Artwork and for some of our Art Gifts.

Digital prints are designed to be downloaded instantly so you can choose how you wish to frame your new print wherever your location in the world.

We are happy to connected you with one of our partnering suppliers if you wish to have your fabulous downloadable digital art custom-framed.

This ✜ symbol represents our Variable Art Products. This shows you the customer if it's available in more than one product option, within the same product.

For example; some art and photography prints are available in different colour ways, paper stocks and orientations. Digital Prints can also be purchased as Art & Photography Prints. You can select the type of print you want by simply selecting the dropdown as either physical or digital.

Digital Art Prints is a digital product that is delivered to your email with a link you click to download your art print and requires no shipping. You will have the option to either select the Digital Print version (no frame) or a physical option (add a frame).

Physical Art Prints are physical products that are printed (framed or unframed) and physically shipped to your door.

Please note – Digital Prints do not have "add a frame" option. They are printable versions and are only delivered electronically.

Canvas Prints can also have the option of Art & Photography Prints. Again, giving you the choice whether you want the art imagery shipped as a physical Canvas Gallery Wrapped (no frame option), or a physical Art Print (framed or unframed).

Please note we do not ship stretched over a frame Canvas Prints internationally – we only ship them rolled up in a tube.

We also do not offer a framing service for Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints, but we can send you to the right People.

Canvas art prints are stretched over a sub-frame, then framed with a shadowbox/tray frame.

Canvas prints don't need glass and they have a natural canvas look, feel and vibe. We like to offer some of our limited collections this way to give our customers an original art finish for their art.

Canvas prints replicate an original painting as close to the original as possible – but without the original art price tag.

Customers have the option to purchase Canvas Prints stretched over a frame and shipped for a flat rate within NZ ready to hang, or you can purchase it rolled up and shipped in a tube.

Please note we do not ship stretched over a frame Canvas Prints internationally – only rolled up in a tube.

A Digital Print is delivered electronically once you have successfully completed the check out and payment process.

Digital Prints are also known as Printable Prints, because they are designed to let you print them at home or send them to your local print shop. This way - you get to choose how you want them printed.

All of our Digtial Prints are sized at "A Series" which means you can enlarge them or reduce them to the right size you need. Finding a frame for your new print then becomes your choice. Please note we size all of our prints by international ISO standards – A4, A3, A2, A1 and A0. When choosing the right frame for your new print - look for these frame sizes to ensure your new print will fit it correctly.

We offer our Digital Prints at a reduced price over our Art Prints making them an affordable and easily accessible for customers located anywhere in the world. If you are located offshore there is no need to wait for shipping time frames, or pay for shipping.

Digital Prints are delivered by email with a link to download.

Please note we do not offer refunds on any Digital Prints or products.

Our Free Prints are exactly that. They are FREE! There is no charge and they are delivered electronically via email after checkout and payment is confirmed.

We like to share the love, so we've created a few FREE prints for everyone to enjoy. It's our way of giving back to our customers and spreading positive messages for everyone and anyone to enjoy.

Add a free print to your cart at anytime. Keep it for yourself, send to someone as a gift, or use them as screensavers. All we ask is that you respect our Copyright Notice and don't commercially reproduce them. Feel free to share on social media. All we ask is that you share the love and tag us.

To be eligible for a free print you must have a minimum of One product already in your cart . We allow One free print, per art product, per order.

When you check out with any free print (or digital print) you will be emailed a link for easy downloading instantly. Then you are free to print however you choose. We recommend using your local printer, print it at home, or send it on to someone else as a kind gesture, act of love, or an art gift.



By default, we offer an affordable simple style and contemporary wooden Boxed Frame made locally in New Zealand.

Our premium looking minimal Boxed Frame is available in a choice of three modern moulding finishes - natural raw wooden oak, black and white with a lustre matt finish.

Our framing choice offers a little more depth than a standard frame to ensure your art prints are gallery quality with a premium finish.

* Please note, we do not ship framed prints internationally

Our default Boxed Frame has a contemporary wood molding for a minimal and gallery finish look and feel. All of our frames are locally made in New Zealand.

Moulding dimensions:
20mm wide x 20mm high x 30mm deep

Finished frame dimensions:
= 240mm x 330mm
A3 = 330mm x 450mm
A2 = 450mm x 625mm
A1 = 635mm x 880mm
A0 = 895mm x 1240mm

Sometimes we release products with different framing choices depending on what we feel accentuates your print and are usually our Simple or Classic Frames. At times we will also customise framing.

Simple Frame - 20mm wide x 20mm high x 20mm deep
Classic Frame - 30mm wide x 20mm high x 20mm deep

* Please note, we do not ship framed prints internationally

All of our frames have acid free backing boards and standard 2mm glass.

A4 frames have hanging teeth, A3 - A1 frames are traditionally strung with d-rings.

A0 frames are strung if portrait or d-rings only (no string) if landscape.

Oak Frames are natural, uncoated wood and will slightly darken over time.

Special glass (non-reflective or UV), or archival mats and baking boards are available on request.

All frames are cleanly taped on the back for a professional finish with the Art + Realism branded mark.

Avoid direct sun light to protect your art from fading.

A1 and A0 sized framed prints with a landscape orientation should be hung with two picture hooks with a gap between them. If you hang with one picture hook pressure is increased on the joins and can pull apart over time.
