Every detail counts: Your artwork will be in trusted hands with the highest quality 100% Archival Picture Framing in NYC, New Haven and Miami


To create this custom picture frame for this Mr. Brainwash piece, we floated the artwork using Japanese paper and rice paste Float mounting techniques, which ensures the stability of the work will endure beautifully over time. For custom framing a larger artwork such as this one by Mr. Brainwash, three different types of hinging were used including pull through and V-hinging to allow the raw edges of the artwork to appear floating on mattboard inside a closed corner shadowbox frame.


As the artwork was painted with layers of collage, mixed media, cartoons and cardboard, our client wanted to see the piece floated, where the edges of the artwork are exposed for a beautiful and clean finish. Check out our process to create this framing finish using Japanese rice paper mounting techniques!

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.
