The First Print.

10 Feb
The very first silkscreen print of the Waun Wen manhole covers.

Manhole Covers In Blue

Here’s the very first screenprint of my series of manhole covers of Waun Wen. I started with an original photo by Melvyn Williams, digitally altered it in Adobe Photoshop, printed it onto a sheet of acetate with an inkjet printer, and used that as a negative to create a photoscreen. Then I printed it onto paper using Daler Rowney System 3 acrylic paint mixed with System 3 screenprinting medium.

Part of the Home and Hinterland community arts project in partnership with Swansea University’s Taliesin Arts Centre.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artefacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
