      Most of the pros I know use Epson with Epson Inks and Papers, they are formulated splilicafcy for eachother, though the same can be said of HP and Canon. I would suggest going to your local professional photo shop and ask to see samples of what they use. You’ll need a big budget to be able to match what they do especially if you want to go larger than 13 19. There’s no substitute for seeing first hand the results before making a choice like this. HP have an entry level printer that will do 24 wide starting at $1200 (US) other brands a closer to $2000 for entry level large format. To get the Art quality you seek the printer will need more than the typical 3 or 4 nozzels of most inkjets, the pro ones have 6 or more to get the full range of colour tones and grays.
