MESHMERIZED / An Attak & Kurtface silk screen project
Silk screening for sure is our favourite way of printing. We've been practicing it for over more than 12 years. Throughout the years we teached this fine technique and gave numerous workshops. The old school, but never out of style, technique seems to have no limits. The screens, the inks, the monotone sound of the machine, mesh and squeegee will bring you in a trance and will mesmerize you.
So, for the love of mesh we teamed up with the legendary Kurtface silk screen workshop. This studio with its roots in cultural, art and underground screen printing was established in 1990 by Wim Habraken. From cutting the films to the special inks at work, this clip shows the process of the screen printing of our posters 'Kill the darkness' and 'You snooze you lose'.
