Amor Prohibido

Francisco Franco Studios

 

 "Amor Prohibido" or "Forbidden Love" is a Day of  the Dead inspired portrait of Tejana Superstar Selena 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.
