This is a two color Risograph print inspired by the architecture of Louis Kahn, namely, the Yale Center for British Art. I used the circle and the square in specific proportions and limited variants (quarter circle, half circle, 3/4 circle, full circle), along with precisely accelerating spacing to create this ‘mathematical’ print. Yes, it took some calculation!
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 also showcases the halftone and overlap qualities of risograph printing. The edition consists of only 50 prints; this is a super limited run!
The size is 11” by 17”. (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 violet is also a schoolbook violet, picture a violet crayon. The green is a bright grassy green; and the blue is also a schoolbook blue, picture a blue crayon.
