Anthony Hopkinson

A long time Cambridge-based painter, Anthony took up printmaking about eight years ago. Printing is now his main artistic activity. In particular, screenprinting. He usually produces small editions of 10 to 20.

How Screenprints are made: a fine mesh is stretched over a frame. The design is created by blocking some parts of the screen and leaving others open. When ink is pushed over the mesh it will pass through the open areas to leave an impression on a sheet of paper below. A print will consist of several colours, each applied to the paper through a different pattern of open areas on the screen.
