Serigraphs

Printers create a "serigraph" (sometimes called a "silkscreen") by using an exacting printmaking technique in which they push paint through a fine screen--usually made of silk or nylon--onto the canvas or fine art paper. The printer uses a different screen for each color in the print. The result is a richly, deeply colored artwork that has many of the qualities of a fine-art painting. Most Serigraphs are "limited-edition" artworks, meaning that the printer creates only a specified number of prints and then destroys the materials used to create them.
