Screen-printing is a printing technique based on the use of serigraphic screens: a polyester fabric (it used to be silk) tight over a wooden frame, where through a photographic procedure the image to print is transferred. Leaving some of the ‘holes’ in the screen open and closing the others, the artist create a matrix that will let the ink pass during the printing process, creating the image. Every printed color needs a different matrix. At the base of the process there’s the ability to create the color selection starting from an original image and the creation of the different hues to be used printing. The technique is very dependent on the sensitivity and skills of the printers, so that is a very personal technique.
