Minnano gallery is pleased to announce the opening of "Neo Silkscreen by 360°GRAPHICS", printing works exhibition corporating with 360 ° GRAPHICS.
Neo Silkscreen is a technique for fusing different printing techniques (lithograph · etching · woodcut, giclee · offset, etc.) with screen printing to expand the expression area of the artist.
Neo Silkscreen was established when a series of 15 types printing works by Keiichi Tanaami in 2011 was produced, which means that it is the first series leading to the current Tanaami's print work. This time we exhibit all works of this series.
Also, we exhibit Neo Silkscreen printing sample by Keita Sagaki produced as a test sample for his on going project. This is a non-selling exhibition only, but it is based on Sagaki's ultra-precise painting, and it is possible to see the combination of Neo Silkscreen technique that has high reproducibility unique to digital, and expressive richness of silk screen printing.
It draws to expect the extension of the expression area in the new work by the artist planned to be completed next year.
Along with Gallery 360 °, it started as a silk screen printing studio in 1982. Since then, Hiroshi Itami, the owner of the studio, has worked on many prominent artists's projects. Itami also has presented his own projects as a contemporary artist and an experimental musician.
His exhibition, "7.83 Hz Symphonic Painting" will be held at Minnano gallery from Thursday, August 16.
