What's a silkscreen?

Silkscreen printing is a very old technique for reproducing graphic works developed in China in the Middle Ages.

The term of the technique comes from the Latin "sericum" which means silk. This technique uses textile stencils, some of which are coated with glue. Placed between the ink and the substrate, the glued parts of the textile screen do not allow the ink to pass over the substrate, when the unglue parts allow it to pass, thus coloring the substrate.

The technique was widely used by Andy Warhol in the 20th century.

What is screen printing ? 

La serigraphy is a very old graphic art reproduction technique developed in China in the Middle Ages.

The term of the technique derives from the Latin "sericum" which means silk. This technique uses textile stencils, part of which is coated with an adhesive. Placed between the ink and the support, the glued parts of the textile screen do not let the ink pass on the support, when the non-glued parts allow it to pass, thus coloring the support.

The technique was widely used by Andy Warhol in the 20th century.
