Graffiti Siebdruck - Siebdruck - International Version

It all began with silk-screen printing....and at GRAFFITI it is still our core area of expertise.

Silk-screen technology enables us to print on rigid materials such as glass-sheets, wood, metal or plastic; the thickness of the priniting is not an issue, as long as they are not too heavy. Where the extremely fast machines used in other types of printing fail to cope with flexible and dimensionally unstable printing materials such as cloth, plastic foil or sheeting, silk-screen printing offers almost limitless possibilities. This flexibility makes it possible to use silk-screen printing in the production of bulky shapes and objects such as book-blocks, concrete slabs or shelving.

Exact, durable colours can be found for all kinds of material as a result of the diverse chemcial composition of the printing inks. Also, the colour density is far higher than what is used in other kinds of printing, enabling us, for example, to print colours like yellow on a black surface in such a way that the result is saturated, non-fading and weather-resistant. Stickers for cars which are produced with silk-screen printing can withstand every car-wash. Silk-screen printing is used for printing on many domestic appliances, and the wording remains clear and visible even after constant use.

In our experience, silk-screen printing is the optimal way to refine anything when the aim is achieving a unity between object and imprint. Our work is an interesting and demanding craft, and we enjoy the lively collaboration we have with our silk-screen printer colleagues lie Michael Domberger and Frank Kicherer in Stuttgart and the local area.

Colleagues and clients constantly accompany a printing process, such as Frank Kicherer and Horst Merkle for a work of IMI Knoebel.

Serichroma halftone screenprint
The non-pus-ultra in screenprinting we achieve with our outstanding technique we call SERICHROMA. From the most subtle gradations to the heaviest saturated colors we are able reproduce great pieces of art no matter if it is watercolour or oil-painting. We are able to add finest differentiations of the surface and structures as deep gloss or core matte. Depending on the artwork we print up to 35 layers, each of them adding up to a wide gamut and deepest saturation. The bare eye will be unable to realize how the work is done.

Original screenprints
Many artists prefer to do their artwork as a template to be exposed directly to the screen. Thus we are enabled to do a straight transfer from paint to paper: The artwork is done with dark color on transparent paper or film. Depending on the opacty of the paint we are able to do prints with gradations. The main challenge is to adjust the different densities to the intensity and saturation of the ink we print. Famous German artist Günther Uecker did his portfolio "Tribute To Hafez" in our studio, which was a very extraordinary experience for us.

Part of the portfolio were a couple of prints where sand from Shiraz was added to printed varnish. Here Günther Uecker views a freshly sanded print.

Solid Inks
Other artists prefer using screenprinting in the original way: plain and solid and strong colors. The focus is on the evenness of the colors and the perfect register within colors hitting each other. An outstanding portfolio printed in this way is LUNAR by Sarah Morris, where 52 different colors had to be mixed and tuned, taking into account matte and glossy finish.

Printing and collage
The last edition published by Christo and Jeanne Claude "Wrapped Globe - Eurasian Hemsiphere" in 2019 was printed and partwise assembled in our studio. Starting with the original artwork that was sent to us we somehow reconstructed the creation which included finding exactly the right carboard, tape and wrapping foil. We then had to understand and reproduce the steps of the creation, always in close reconciliation with the artist. It was a very exciting experience!


Our screenprints at FESPA-Awards
Displayed twice screenprints of our studio were to be seen at the FESPA-Awards in Munich. We are happy to have won GOLD for our SERICHROMA-halftone-prints of the "Porsche Jump" (left) and SILVER for the "Couleur Additive Germania" by Carlos Cruz-Diez in collaboration with famous screenprinter Michael Domberger (right).


... and back to a real master of printing
HAP Grieshaber is one of the most famous German wood-block printers. Here is a table placed close to the house he was living in our town, showing a quote on printing.

(atttempt of a translation:)
You have to be young to be able to print. Printing is an adventure. "I dared to", the printed sheet said.While printing, while cutting the dynamism of forcedness, bliss and despair can be experienced.
Printing is an encounter of coincidence with proposedness.
Printing in itself is the experience. Printing is the frenzy of doing and control at the same time. Strain, ferocity of expression, radicalism which is attacked by the laws of computers.
Printing has always been a young art. Don't let it be taken away from you!
HAP Grieshaber, 1978

We adore it! No more words needed.
