Mariscal creates the works of digital form, drawing on the ipad with different programs. Subsequently the drawings are prepared for printing before being printed with the giclée process, a complex and high quality procedure, with pigmented inks and art paper, which offers surprising results.
What is Giclée? Of French origin, the word Giclée, pronounced yiclé, comes from the verb gicler which means to spray, to pulverize. Currently, we use this term to describe a printing process whereby the ink is deposited on the surface of the artist's favourite support, be it fabric or paper in any of its finishes.
Now, giclée copies are created using professional ink jet printers of 8 to 13 colours, able of spraying with absolute precision an average of 5 million microscopic drops of ink per second.
The image is printed in this way achieving great detail in the forms, being able to also produce patterns, patterns and continuous tone. In this way you get a piece of high quality digitized but with the appearance of manual reproduction imitating strokes, brush strokes, etc.
It is printed on paper 100% artistic quality cotton, free of acid and with pigmented inks that are stable to light and with a longevity of more than 75 years.
