Here's how I make my pop art prints.
About two years ago I started making my own silkscreen urban pop art prints in my artist studio in Brighton. I prefer the process of making my own prints because I am fascinated and excited by the way they can turn out. I love all the mistakes and challenges that print making gives me and the endless fun possibilities.
I like to make each print unique rather than a run of 100 prints that all look the same. The colours are made of acrylic paint mixed with silkscreen medium which you can get from most art shops. I then use spray paint on my prints to layer up more colours or add a variety of different colourful finishes. I also use tagging maker pens as this adds an extra dimension to each print.
The prints I make come in a range of different sizes including A1 to A2, A3 and A4. I like to keep these to standard sizes as it makes it easier for people to frame them up.
The screens I use are all pre-made by a local supplier and this helps me get straight to work on producing my artwork.
Some of the biggest influences to make my own urban pop art prints were Pop Artist Andy Warhol and Graffiti Artist Banksy, both very different but both use great techniques and have given me amazing inspiration.
If you are interested in any of my prints they are available to buy via my website and I offer free shipping worldwide. If you have any questions please get in contact with me.
