Jasjyot Singh Hans' 'Bouquet' is made as a salute to his wonderful mother who lives in India, and to women everywhere. Inspired by the strength they've given him to be comfortable in his own skin, drawing women is Jasjyot's way of empowering himself. Although utmost care is taken to make sure all the colors align perfectly in the edition, minor misregistration in the print is purely because of the nature and process of risograph printing.
Limited 2nd Edition of 100, Two Colour Risograph Print, On Cougar Smooth White 118 GSM Paper, Hand-Signed & Numbered, Comes with Certificate of Authenticity.
Risograph machines debuted in Japan in 1986. Prints are developed using soy-based ink and are referred to as a “risograph” or “riso print”. In a similar way to screen-printing, a print image is burned onto a master sheet. The sheet is then wrapped around a print drum. Ink is pushed through this stencil onto the paper. The process is repeated for each colour and due to this, a slight misalignment may take place with the layers of colour. What would normally be seen as an imperfection, adds character and a “human touch" feel to the art.
These prints are limited editions, artists have restricted the total number of artworks produced in the edition, so that each individual work will retain its value over time. All limited edition prints comes with the certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
These prints are hand-signed and numbered by the artists in pencil which is art industry standard providing an additional layer of authenticity. The value of a hand-signed and numbered print is usually higher than the value of an unsigned print.
