Serigraphs - Screenprints

Serigraphs - Screenprints

Silkscreen is a relatively young form of artistic printmaking and was only established as such in the middle of the 20th century. This is despite the fact that silkscreen, or screen printing, goes back to a form of printmaking that is much older and potentially even the oldest printing method ever: stencil printing. The method consists in applying ink through a mesh onto the surface to be printed on. The stencil covers the areas where the ink is not supposed to go.

Screen printing was originally used for purely commercial purposes, for instance in order to print on textiles or posters. In order to distinguish between artistic printmaking and the use of the process in advertisement and the design of consumer goods, the term "serigraphy" was introduced.

Serigraphy became enormously popular through its use in Op Art and Pop Art. The most well-known works in this area are probably those by Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Francois Morellet, and Victor Vasarely. It was precisely this commercial origin of the screen printing process that was given artistic significance by these artists and it was deliberately embraced by them. They appropriated methods and motifs from advertisement and everyday life - i.e., pop – in order to create a new and fresh form of art. Screen printing offered the perfect technique for this end.

But silkscreen was not only used within the context of Pop Art. It is a strongly expressive printing method that is used by various artists for their graphic prints.
