Screenprint (Serigraph, Silk Screen)
A process based on the stencil principle in which material is attached to a mesh screen to block the flow of ink to the paper in a particular area. A squeegee is used to force the paint or ink through the exposed areas of the mesh screen. A separate screen is required for each color in the artist's composition and the same piece of paper is printed with each screen in succession. The resultant image is simple, yet bold and often has a graphic quality.
