“¿Por qué le llamo “mi Diego”? Translation: "Why Do I Call Him My Diego?"

Francisco Franco Studios

This is an imagined biographical portrait of Frida Kahlo painted by renown California Artist Francisco Franco. The original 18" x 24" oil painting on wood panel was completed in July 2014. 

 

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 high-end 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.
