This is a two color Risograph print in which I wanted to take full advantage of the overlapping colors, shades and visual textures offered by this printing method. The image splits a circle into slices or segments that create the illusion of a fan in motion.
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 shades of two colors with the overlaps creating more colors and shades. The edition consists of only 50 prints; this is a super limited run!
The size is 10” by 10”. (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 red is a typical fire truck red, not too orange, not too pinkish; and the blue is also a schoolbook blue, picture a blue crayon. 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.
