Giclee Prints ? Why are they so special ?
Giclee , commonly pronounced “jhee-clay,” is a an archival, museum grade, digital art print on canvas or fine art paper using ink-jet and digital methods. Unlike a standard print that is mass produced, giclee prints are made one at a time using the same pigmented inks found in original paintings. Giclee prints react to light the same way an original painting would and are proven to last up to 100 years without any noticeable change.
How long does my order take to arrive ?
Your artwork is printed immediately after payment is received. You can expect a turnaround time of 3-5 days. Our giclee prints require extra special attention from the artist to inspect and finalize. If you have any questions about your order, please contact us and we will respond as soon as possible.
How is the artwork shipped ?

What is an artist proof and why should I invest ?
An artist proof is an extremely rare print and is not included in the count of a limited edition set. This factor alone makes them even more valuable than a limited edition print. To retain the valuable worth of these select artworks I am only offering 10 artist proofs, per artwork. All artists proofs are signed, numbered and marked A.P. (artist proof). Please visit shop to see current artwork availabilities.
What are Limited Edition Prints ?
When you buy a Limited Edition Print, you are investing in a rare and extremely collectible piece of artwork. Limited Edition Prints are a set number of prints that are created in a specific size and medium. Each giclee print is individually hand signed and numbered. For example, an artwork labeled 1/100 means it is the first of one hundred prints to be created in that size and medium. As time passes, the value of limited edition prints rise due to selling out and becoming less available.
What is Metallic Paper ?
Metallic paper has a striking mirror like effect that is usually described as “Chrome on Paper.” This paper has opened up a whole new dimension for professionals seeking distinctive output that stands out from the rest. Using a proprietary combination of film laminate layers it produces intense black density levels and ultra rich color gamuts unlike any other paper we’ve seen or tested.
How does Jalai Lama create his digital art ?
Jalai Lama’s creative process is continually evolving as he believes one can never plateau with sacred art, for each visionary manifestation is a magical reflection of our own divine evolutionary progression. Surrendering to the stillness and beauty of each moment gives him all the inspiration he could ever hope for. Photography is yet another way Jalai loves to convey and express his passion. Capturing timeless photographs inspires Jalai Lama greatly. The inspirational qualities within these timeless photographs inspire him to work with the inherent beauty until something magical is born. Sometimes photographic elements can be composed into a masterful visual display of artistry and sometimes a single photograph can capture the magic with no alteration at all. Artworks can develop in as short as a few days to as long as several years as it really just depends on the natural evolution of the piece. He believes in allowing each piece to naturally unfold and reveal itself until it feels magical and full of life. Digital art opens up a whole new world of possibilities for Jalai Lama and he intends on gaining insight into everything it has to offer.
What is a Mandala ?
Mandala (मण्डल) is a Sanskrit word that means “circle”. In the Hindu and Buddhist religious traditions their sacred art often takes a mandala form. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention of aspirants and adepts, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. According to the psychologist David Fontana, its symbolic nature can help one “to access progressively deeper levels of the unconscious, ultimately assisting the meditator to experience a mystical sense of oneness with the ultimate unity from which the cosmos in all its manifold forms arises.” In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the Universe from the human perspective. – en.wikipedia.org
