How should I care/look after my print?

Giclée prints are renowned for their quality and extreme longevity, which is why they’re displayed in museums, art galleries and private collections. So it’s important to properly protect and care for your new pride and joy. This is why we always say it’s best to buy your print already framed, as this will avoid it getting damaged. But if you’d prefer to buy a standalone print or use your own framer, try to avoid leaving it rolled for too long

To uncurl or flatten a print, carefully remove it from the postal tube whilst keeping it covered in the protective acid-free tissue paper. Lay it out on a clean, flat surface, image side up. With the tissue paper covering the print’s image, place some smooth, flat objects (like books) on the ends and middle of the print. Let your giclée print relax over-night and it should be nice and flat. Avoid uncurling it by rolling the print the opposite way to receiving it, as you can easily crease it if done incorrectly

Having a frame that is FSC certified and created from 100% acid-free materials is vital. It keeps the artwork in mint condition across the years and ensures the colours stay true. If you don’t opt for one of our frames, make sure you buy one of the same quality, otherwise, the materials can damage the print over time and sunlight could fade the colours

Edition

Juan de la Rica (b. 1979) is a Spanish painter based in Bilbao. He received his BFA from the University of the Basque Country in 2007. Since then, he has exhibited his work in many national and international solo and group shows.

The themes of his paintings are varied, such as still lives, portraits, mythological scenes… He usually approaches on these topics from irony and humour, and he likes to suggest open narratives, so that the viewer makes his own movie. He likes to paint with flat and saturated colors, and with synthetic and clean lines.

Painting means to him constant adventure and improvisation, which contrasts with the previous planning of the image, where he tries to make the composition and each element well defined before facing the canvas. That is why documentation and sketches are very important in his creative process.

As a figurative painter, the search for the subject matter is essential and, at the same time, paradoxically, it is nothing more than a plot excuse for the paint itself to manifest, advance and develop, in the most free and autonomous way, always respecting everything that is ungovernable in it.
