A serigraph is more commonly known as a silk-screen print. The serigraph process can produce prints of startling clarity or subdued elegance depending upon the artist's wishes.
To make a serigraph from an original piece of art, every color in the original must be identified and separated. After the separation has been made, a screen is made for each individual color. Those areas that are not to be printed are blocked out to prevent the transfer of ink or paint to paper or canvas. The paper or canvas is then placed under the screen and the ink is forced through the open mesh. This process is repeated for each individual color. Serigraphs can have up to hundreds of separate colors.
Although the process is extremely time consuming, this high quality process produces a beautiful work of art that is also affordable.
