I am looking to print a few paintings from an artist I REALLY like, but his originals cost upwards of $10,000 and there doesn't seem to be any prints available. Is it pretty heavily frowned upon to take some high resolution images of his work down to Staples, and paying $20 per print to have them printed there?
I would NEVER sell these. They would rest upon the walls of my studio from now until the end of time.
A) I don't want to fuck the artist over.
B) I don't want to do anything illegal.
Thanks for any information.
