In 1997, world-champion chess player Kasparov lost to chess computer Deep Blue. It was the first time in history that this had taken place on such a level. Using this legendary dual as a basis, Dejo and Jaf’r have created a work of art consisting of 64 canvasses which represent the underlying theme: the contrast between man and machine. The diagram of the situation between the sixteenth and seventeenth set of the sixth match has been depicted.

Kasparov – playing black – has just outwitted a bishop with his pawn (he has pounced right on top of it!) As a consequence, his queen is no longer covered and Deep Blue’s rook (castle); laden with weapons, will directly strike the black queen: already clearly in distress. While one of the black bishops contemplates revenge, a knight is already getting plastered. He promptly relieves himself on the head of one of his own pawns, who despite this stays nicely in position.

Fine Art Print/ Giclée/Piezo Graphic

Fine art print is a high resolution printmaking technique whereby high quality ink is sprayed onto paper. When the process was invented in the late 1980s the name originally applied to fine arts. At the same time, fine art print is also known as giclée or piezo graphic. To clarify the word Giclée we have to look at the French word gicleur, which means ‘nozzle’. While the term piezo is derived from the Greek word piezein, meaning to press. Therefore an indefinite number of prints can be made with this technique. However Toyism fine art prints/giclées/piezo graphics always come in a limited edition, are numbered, signed and come with an official certificate.
