And Now The Chaps…

I’ve finished a series of 8 silkscreen prints of women artists who inspire or move me and now I’m going to have a bash at the chaps. It’s been harder to source photographs of the male artists. A lot of them have been very formal, posed ones and so many men in the early twentieth century had large beards, which make them look a bit samey. There seem to be more photos of the women artists of the same era, a lot of them informal, family photos which has given me far more choice. Egon Schiele is an exception as he had a series of experimental photographic portraits  made and he also shaved! I’ve worked up a drawing onto the screen and worked onto it with Speedball Diazo drawing fluid using various sable brushes. It’s one of the screens I’ll be taking to the London Art Car Boot Fair (June the 14th) to demonstrate screenprinting, alternating with stencil artist Simon Dark. We’ll be doing our arty thing outside Dylan’s Mobile Book Bus.
