SERIGRAPHY is a printing method that provides three-dimensionality and high texture of image prints by consistent, repeated application of paints without using any raster. No reproduction does give such an effect!
For serigraphy is usually taken the original work from the artist and then the photoforms are created for each color by serial copying with ink on fotokalke - it takes up to two months . Then begins the process of printing each color, layer-by-layer, which also takes at least a month . With the advent of computer and UV inks the time considerably reduced. A crucial role in obtaining high-quality copies are playing professional training and the special skill of the artist, who prepares picture for the print by subtracting colors. That is impossible without an art education and extensive experience in the field of screen printing. This job requires for understanding how has been written the original, from which a copy is made, and understanding the technology of writing; it also requires for having an idea of how the color palette is going to change with sequential application of large number of layers when printing.
Criteria for determining the original copy of a work of art :
1. Participation of the author.
2. Author's signature and the serial number of the serigraphy.
3 Limited edition – about 150-500 copies.
