Screenprinting Silk Screen Used For Wall Art

Cool Idea: Screenprinting Silk Screen For Wall Art

I went to the Alameda Flea Market last weekend with hopes of finding an affordable, large-scale piece of art for my living room. Amidst pricey vintage bus signs, European advertisement posters, maps, and scientific drawings, this industrial-looking piece caught my eye.

From a distance I thought it had a metallic sheen, but once up close I realized it was sheer. After chatting with the sellers I found out that it is a massive silk screen used for screenprinting (the pattern is reminiscent of this DIY project, no?), and it was only $45!

Discarded materials from the screenprinting process like test prints can make for unlikely, one-of-a-kind artwork perfect for its imperfections. Complete with heavy-duty hardware, bits of masking tape, and paint drops, it's a much-needed party-crasher in my white and cream living room.
