Murals and Presidential Paintings

WHAT IS A GICLE'E ?
Gicle'e is a French term meaning to spurt. Pronounced zhoclay.  The French painters have been using the term for years as a style of fine art. In our digital world it is a method of producing art with fine uv protectant inks on any media such as canvas, paper,wood, rice paper, etc. For buyers who want more than a paper print but not a costly original, a gicle'e is the choice.The new inks are so vivid that at times the gicle'e is more appealing.
