This is a limited edition giclee on paper. Signed by Alex Ross. Across the years, Superman has been immortalized as a legendary hero through art and film. However, the Man of Steel is much more than just pop culture for artist Alex Ross. Ross harboured a strong admiration for the icon â€“ Superman became a muse, one of the forces that drove him to become an artist and work to where he is today. This design was inspired by Max Fleischerâ€™s 1941 Superman cartoon series. Fleischerâ€™s dynamic, action packed representation is apparent in Rossâ€™s Son of Krypton, which captures the valiant, fearless essence of this quintessential hero.

Sometimes described as "digital lithographs", giclees are created using extremely sophisticated computer equipment to create a reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Most giclees start with an original painting or illustration in oil, watercolour, or charcoal. The original work is scanned and colour corrected under the supervision of the artist before being printed with a extremely high resolution giclee printer. From the French term for "spray of ink", giclee printers lay down millions of microscopic ink droplets with such precision that the images, colours, and subtle nuances of the original piece are reproduced with breathtaking accuracy and beauty.
Giclees are created on high quality acid-free rag paper or on canvas, and are generally done in limited editions of no more than 750 pieces. They are often signed by the artist.
Limited edition giclees are a beautiful addition to any home and any art collection.
