"Los Payasos" is comedic look at California culture, Spanish art, and the Chicano comedic heritage and it's relation to art history, especially Spanish painting. This humorous work is 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 original 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.
