Silk screening, like etching, is an original form of art known as ‘multiple art’. It is conceived by the artist, supervised by the workshop coach and approved by the editor. Each piece is signed and numbered by its author, which gives it a special and unique value. It is important to distinguish between an original piece and a mere photographic reproduction. By nature, a copy can be reprinted an infinite number of times and it lacks the unique value of an original one. The impact of a reproduced piece cannot be compared with the impact of the original, which is personally conceived and cared for by the artist in real life.
In this way, for each print, the artist is committed to his piece, be it with his own hands or through his in situ supervision of the printing expert. This technique was developed in China two thousand years ago, reappearing later in Europe during the Belle Epoque period. The majority of well-known painters in the latest decades have used silk screening, such as Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, among others.
