This is a two color Risograph print base on simple geometric shapes and the juxtaposition of how subtle yet powerful they can be. The print also features single-tone gradients and varying transparencies offered by Risograph printing.
Risography is a printing technique originated in Japan in the 1980’s that uses soy based ink. It is often used for comics and zines, but I wanted to push the limits and use it for art prints.
These were printed in Brooklyn on uncoated 181 gsm paper. The print features different intensities of two colors with beautiful areas of disappearing color fills. The edition consists of only 50 prints; this is a super limited run!
The size is 8.5” by 11”. (Frame not included.)

Risograph prints are very vibrant since they use real ink and spot colors to print. Think of it as a machine done screen print. They use a halftone texture to generate different intensities/transparencies for each color, so you will see this texture on the print. There will be slight variations from print to print, this makes each one truly unique!
The melon is a bright intense version of what a ripe melon’s flesh looks like; and the seafoam is a lovely muted green with a hint of blue in it.
