Second layer developed, unfortunately one tiny detail got underexposed (don't forget the size of this mama)...
The Devil however Hides in the Details... so while I prefere little detail differences from one printing to another (as a matter of fact from one print to another too, and in fact this is exactly the difference between handmade and digital), Zofos must take one of three decisions...
A) leave it as it is.
B) correct it by hand (the star, not the little lines in the triangles)...
C) clean it all over, re-mesh and redevelop...
Thoroughly cleaning the screen from leftover color (2nd cleaning - Nitro) and residual glue from the tape that served as color bleed protection.
Once the mesh gets reclaimed, residual color will be visible (trace) and will be cleaned once again.
GOTCHA!!!...reclamed... well allmost.. need a last one cleaning hand... but reclamed...
For those of you who are accustomed to my work, "make-shift" is my core concept, both in art and applied arts.
After printing for a few other fellow artists, Sonke (etching), and a few Mapet (sticker A, sticker B) projects (between them the share stickers joint project with Lotek) and following my make-shift printhouse tradition, I accepted a bigger challenge... a 50cX70cm 3 color challenge that is... for ZOFOS.
Mind you this is a make-shift printhouse... and from 12cm stickers... to 35cm t-shirts... a 50X70cm 3 color posters without prior printhouse specifications can be quite a challenge.
Meet "Godzilla" my handmade screen frame made for the occasion... 64,5cm X 91cm (outside), inside 58,5cm X 85cm... Double Bolted!!
Cost so far:
• 3m semi-planed wood = 5 euro
• 95X70cm Mesh = 25 euro
• Bolts & screws ≈ 5 euro
What i woulde have done differently:
Maybe i should have choosen a well planed wood insead of a semi-planed one, it would make tape easier to stick on later when i'll need to stop corners from color bleeding... or i should have varnished it before putting it together.
Separations and Transparencies:
Colors separated, transparencies ready to print... in each transparency 1pt of stroke added for color trapping. Also 8 point stars added to serve as registration marks.
Cost + 3.20 Euro, maybe i'll print a new transparency for the Black color since this one seems chocked in the wave lines.
My big, fat, hairy, NON-GREEK, Greek crisis street art.
The Athens School of Fine Arts (ASKT), organizes a GREEK-CRISIS Street art... thing... from which Greek artivists are of course excluded.
No one invited us, and I wouldn't even bother to comment, however i feel compelled to do so after reading a School of Fine Arts comment to newspaper TO BHMA, which stated that Greeks were excluded due to the "dubious artistic value" of Greek street art.
ASKT's need to control and dictate "imported culture" to its "inferior greek citizens", once again shows why it never leads and always follows... and it doesn't come as a surprise.
A sorrofull salute to fellow foreign street artist that are being used as a free speech and polyphony alibi.

Ανήμερα της μεγαλύτερης σελήνης της χρονιάς -σώμα ουράνιο συνυφασμένο και με την μητρότητα-
αποφάσισα να γράψω για τη μάνα μου.
Την άλλη, την πολιτιστική.
Εκείνης που για να νοιώσουμε την έ(κ)λειψη της, έπρεπε να πεθάνει.
Μετά το "μαύρο", παραπέτασμα της απώλειας, οι μπάρες οι πολύχρωμες, σκόπιμη απόσπαση από το πένθος.
"Αρoν-άρoν", στο σπίτι μας, μιά άλλη... μιά μητριά.
"Συνετή" αυτή... Α!.. και νοικοκοιρά!
Αποδεκτή και απ'αυτούς που χαρήκαν τον θάνατο της "αμαρτωλής".
Για το αύριο φοβάμαι, μέσα από το Ιστορικό Αρχείο της ΕΡΤ το κοινό μας παρελθόν είναι δεδομένο.
Για εκείνο το "αύριο" που ξεκίνησε την Τρίτη (11 Ιουνίου 2013) και ξανοίγεται μπροστά μας...
Ποιός θα μας σταθεί σε αυτό;
Ποιος θα μας καταλάβει;
Ποιός θα μας πονέσει;
Ποιός θα μας μαλώσει πριν μας αγκαλιάσει και πάλι;
...τέλος, ποιός θα το καταγράψει; Πως;
Γράφω απόψε για τη μάνα μου,
και γράφω με τη βαθιά πεποίθηση πως ακόμα και η χειρότερη γυναίκα,
δεν μπορεί παρά να είναι η καλύτερη μάνα για τα παιδιά της.

GROUP IN FUSION
OCTOBER 8 - 29, 2011.Originally, collage artist Michael Anderson came to Athens to collect street posters to create his brand of large scale international collages. While here, he met Marianna Panayiotoudis and Theofrastos Haritos and had multiple conversations with them concerning both fine art scene and the street art scene in Athens. In an attempt to secure a studio Michael Anderson obtained the building, first as an open studio and then to create an exhibition combining both street and fine arts in one show to reinforce the collaboration of artists in Athens.
