About Capital Art, Inc.

Capital Art, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CAPA) acquires, editions and manages some of the world's most iconic photographic images. Internationally marketing limited edition and reproduction prints created from original negatives by some of the 20th Century's most important photographers, the company also makes images available for publications and merchandise.

Capital Art sells and distributes classic and contemporary limited edition photographic images and reproductions with a focus on iconic celebrity images. Images include historic shots of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, Jackie Robinson and other beacons of popular culture.

Investment in iconic photographic images is increasingly becoming an important component for a growing number of art collectors and investors. As photography is becoming an asset class in its own right the demand for iconic images continues to increase with little new material coming to market. Capital Art seeks to capitalize on these finite resources by acquisition of negatives and rights whilst stimulating awareness and demand by bringing exceptional quality lithographs at more affordable prices to a wider audience, in turn increasing demand for its limited editions and original negatives.
