Serigrafia como meio artístico

Screen printing as an artistic medium

Screen printing is not only a reproductive and commercial technique, it is also a means of artistic creation using plastic resources for this purpose.

The way we know Screen Printing today (although a printing style was used in China, 960-1279) was invented and patented in 1907 by an Englishman, Samuel Simon, using screen for quality fabrics and papers.

This method was later perfected by other graphic artists, for example, experimenting with various chemical substances and emulsions, thus obtaining better results.

Relevant artists in the area:

  • Andy Warhol;
  • Robert Rauschenberg;
  • Eduardo Paolozzi;
  • Richard Hamilton;
  • RB Kitaj;
  • Richard Estes.
