Giclee has advantages and disadvantages. Giclee printing does not require the artist to print the edition all at one time and can order a few prints as needed this preserves the quality of the artwork along with saving on space in the Artist’s studio. The downfall to this is that the prints are no longer hand signed by the artist after they have passed. We do an artist estate signature (stamped) on each Giclee with an updated Chop (Japanese stamp) to signify that these were printed after his death. We will still be handwriting the titles of the prints, but will no longer be numbering. We are closing out the numbered editions that are already printed. If you have previously purchased one of his Giclees and are wondering how many were actually printed in the numbered edition, please feel free to send us an email and we can give you that number.
Since we order Giclees as needed, we can now offer multiple sizes and material. You will have a choice of either 100% rag watercolor paper or poly/cotton artist canvas. If you knew anything about Ikki you would who he was anything but standard and this is shown in his artwork; the quality, the lines, and right down to the sizes of the images. My father was one of those people that didn’t like to conform to standards, so you will probably never find one of his pieces in a standard size. That being said the sizes we offer will be approximately standard sizes.
