About this Artwork
Giclée + Other Art Terms
Giclée: From the French verb gicler, meaning, “to spray.” It is pronounced “zhee-clay”. The giclée process uses an incredibly accurate computer-controlled jet to apply ink to watercolor paper, canvas or etching paper. These unique jets are able to vary the width of the ink stream to as small as 1/100th the width of human hair. Giclées have a higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than serigraph. Giclée reproductions are used to produce museum quality, fine art reproductions. In the art world it is generally regarded as the highest quality reproduction available.
Mauro has developed an innovative approach to painting that combines rigorous academic techniques with creative and suggestive compositions.
Mauro is one of the few young artists to excel in portraits and nudes. He has more than 50 national and international shows and prizes to his credit.
He presented the thesis, The Presence of Realism and Force and was accorded top honors at graduation. He has taught at all levels of education in Peru and became the Director of the Upper School of Artistic Formation at the Art School of San Pedro de Cajas. He is currently professor of painting at the School of Fine Art. Individual exhibits include three in Lima, Peru and two in Guatemala. He has participated in over 50 group exhibitions in private salons, museums, galleries, and embassies. He has exhibited internationally in Guatemala, Italy, Spain, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia and the United States. His vision of Humanamente Natural is also the title of his fifth solo showing. This exhibit shows the most recent work of what he considers to be an art documentary, as it tells of the unique dialogue with nature. He terms this as natural humanity, painting the naturalness of his world as he seeks to shorten the distance between man and nature, light and atmosphere, form and color, what is and is not important–it is all naturally human and humanly natural. Natural humanity permits the appreciation of the hidden wonder in one flower, one plant, one dove, a sound, an idea, a road, a small village–it is all a reflection of what one feels.
