DGA (Digital Graphic Artwork): Lisa Aisato's images are made by mixing physical media and digital drawing. She usually starts on paper or canvas and at some point digitises the sketch in order to finish the image with her digital pen/pencil and drawing board. This means the «original» is a digital file and the prints are the only physical representation. This way of creating the actual image is often referred to as DGA - Digital Graphic Artwork.
Giclée (Giclée Fine Art Print) is a method of producing the actual print. A giclée print is a digital ink print of high quality that requires an advanced printer and a combination of lightfast ink and an acid-free paper of archival standard, as guaranteed by the manufacturer. The printing technique is used by photographers and by artists for producing DGA prints in limited edition.
Until 2019, Lisa labelled her limited edition prints as «Giclée». From 2019 all limited edition prints are labelled «DGA» since this is a more precise description of the way the actual image is made. Except from the changed labelling the prints are exactly the same.
