Street / Graffiti artist Chris Mendoza's artwork framed at Frames and StretchersChris Mendoza is an Nicaragua-born, NYC-based painter whose been doing street art for a long time, and whose hung around some of the graffiti greats. He makes collages out of stickers. His composition is powerful, complicated and colorful. We had the pleasure of framing some of his work. The moulding is natural maple from our exclusive Rivington Medium Shadow Boxes. Matted with Rising museum board and recessed with 1/2 inch spacers to create more space. We also did a v-grove around the image. It gives an interesting level of sophistication to the custom framing job.

Bettina Vaz Guimarães, simplicity and boldness in one work

Posted on July 13, 2015 by Erick Rios

Abstract work by Bettina Vaz Guimarães custom framed at Frames and Stretchers

We recently had the pleasure to frame the beautiful work by Bettina Vaz Guimarães. She composed simple geometric forms using very bold colors. We decided to float the work over a simple white Rising museum mat. The frame was built using the white washed Italian moulding from our Rivington Medium Shadow Boxes. Also, we added spacers to recess the piece giving it more space and topped up with Tru Vue Conservation Clear Glass. The result was a minimalistic frame that allow protagonist to the painting.
