A printmaking process in which an ink-blocking stencil is applied to a screen, allowing ink that is wiped across the screen to selectively pass through to a printing surface. Originally used for commercial purposes in the early 20th century, the technique would be termed “serigraphy” in the 1940s to differentiate its use for fine 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 signed and numbered by the artists providing an additional layer of authenticity. The value of a signed print is usually higher than the value of an unsigned print.
