We were strangers too by Keith Francis

Design By:

Since the late 1990's, Francis has used a varied practice of installation, sculpture, painting, graphic design and drawing to explore the complex relationship between social, political and environmental issues. In 2013 Francis began a commissioned piece called 'Reflections of Being', arguably his largest outdoor sculpture for the University of Mississippi, Museum in Oxford, MS. Through labor-intensive hand forming of stainless steel, welding and fabrication. Currently Keith is exhibiting a conceptual mixed media art piece examining the racial segregation and disenfranchisement of African Americans rights to vote in the South, called 'Let's Vote' for a "Commemorative of the Civil Rights Movement: 1964-1968" at Delaware State University, Dover, DE.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
