Why do you like hand-pulled silkscreen? “I like how it allows us to simply customise almost everything in the combination, using assorted papers, crazy colours, experimenting with ink opacity, printing sequence and imagine all the possibilities out there. As a screen-printer, the challenge is in how we manage our resources for each project as well as dealing with artists and designers. All the details you could think of, from handling the files, colour separation, exposing the screens, mixing inks, making every layer perfect before they safely reach the clients. As an artist-printmaker, I could say that the only limitation is yourself.”
