Omkar Mahashabde_Caricatures

We met Omkar at the Screen Printing workshop at Space118 and glad that we did. His illustrations truly speak for him – Effortless! Its seldom that an artist is so smooth both on paper and digital medium – one needs to view more of his work on his blog ‘illustrations design and me’ to understand why we have summed it up in just a word. He is that guy who has revealed what is said never to be revealed….. his TooL KiT…. and thats why we like him so much – effortless and fearless!

P.S. My personal favorite is the caricature of Maximus. Also we have this “man with glasses and beard” cartoon personally signed by him… soon to adorn the walls of the MMT office! Yeahhh!!!!

Art of Screen Printing

‘Woah! This is harder than it looks!’… I guess that’s when you know something truly is an ART!

That was my first reaction after attending a workshop atSpace118 last weekend and I am sure many others would agree with me on this. It is the kind of art that requires some serious commitment to begin and then to get better and better at it.

Many small studios in Lower Parel and Andheri work their skills on screen designs and print thousands of products every day! We too are waiting for the MMT contact cards to come fresh out of press, and so this desire to know how screen printing is even done!!!

What is Screen printing?
It is a printing technique that uses a woven meshto support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image.

It is arguably the most versatile of all printing processes and often identified with the pop-art works of Marliyn Monroe by artist Andy Warhol who popularised this technique. It was also known as serigraphy in the USA in 1962.

Did you know?
Apart from the regular paper, textiles, glass mediums – screen printing is used in many many different industries including: balloons, medical devices, electronics, vehicals, circuit boards, touch screens, product labels, sign and displays, snowboard graphics, thick film technology etc etc  😮

Screen printing is truly a skill every art&craft enthusiast should master!
Hopefully this encourages and inspires you to take up the challenge that is screen printing, also do let us know when you succeed and create some beautiful works of art!
