What is a silkscreen?

Silkscreen is a method for making prints using a screen made of silk or some other mesh fabric. The screen is prepared with a substance which only allows the ink forced through it to print in selected areas. Each color used needs a separate screen.

Op Art

A visual art style that makes use of optical illusions. The works of opt art are abstract and many of the known pieces are the black & white. They typically give a movement, vibrating patterns, flashing and hidden images impression to the viewer. Op art antecedents can be traced back with respect to color effects and graphics to Futurism, Constructivism, Dada and Neo impressionism.

Grupo Ruptura

Grupo Ruptura was an organization formed in Brazil by artists who wished to break away from the old forms of naturalist painting in favor of geometric abstract art. The seven published their Ruptura Manifesto, early in the 1950s, advocating “new art for a new country”.

Postmodernism

Postmodernism is artwork which sought to make visual statements against authority, to remove boundaries between art and everyday life, and to bridge gaps between the cultural elite and popular masses. Art in this movement embraces many earlier conventions and styles in eclectic mixtures.
