Team member in our studio with the finished custom riveted welded steel frame for Alexis Diaz original artwork
The honor of pairing a one-of-a-kind artwork with equally unique craftsmanship and conservation is what we love most about custom framing projects. Such as with this hand-embellished limited silkscreen by Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz, now beautifully offset within a custom welded shadowbox frame.
We floated the artwork on museum matboard using archival rice paste and Japanese paper mounting techniques. Our framing experts work one on one with artists and clients to offer the best framing solutions to present and protect your artwork as the focal point of any collection.

The added touch of riveted steel moldings
gives the outermost layer of this welded frame impeccable detail and an industrial aesthetic. This complements the pointillism effect of Alexis Diaz’s artistry, who often transforms public spaces with large scale murals and eye-catching designs in this signature style.
A final layer of museum glass gives 99% UV protection and stunning clarity, to extend the longevity of this artwork and protect colors from fading for years to come.
