"Amor Prohibido" or "Forbidden Love" is a Day of the Dead inspired portrait of Tejana Superstar Selena Quintanilla-Pérez painted by renown artist Francisco Franco. This is a giclee (zhee-klay) print, an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity, high tech reproduction done on a special large format printer. Giclees are produced from digital scans of existing artwork.
The prints are printed with ultra-chrome inks
on archival canvas, sealed with ArchivaCoat Gloss, a water based liquid coating designed to enhance the durability and increase the lifespan of printed images. The canvas is then finished with a museum wrap; a finishing technique for artwork mounted on stretchers. The canvas fabric is wrapped and mounted onto wooden stretcher bars with no visible staples on the edge of the frame, leaving a clean professional look. No framing is necessary.
The prints are all done in house at Francisco Franco Studios. All prints are personally signed by the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity.
