Home / Screenprints
Screenprinting has been used commercially since the 1920s. It first began to be used by artists in 1930s America and the term ‘serigraph’ was initially used to denote an artist’s print, as opposed to commercial work. It has been widely used by artists as a printmaking technique since the 1950s. A stencil is applied to the mesh of a silk screen and exposed to UV light - ink is then pulled through the 'open' holes of the mesh to print the image.
