Exploring the Possibilities of Graphic Design through Offset Printing
Graphic Trial 2011 represents an attempt to explore the relationship between graphic design and the art of printing in order to discover new forms of expression. Every year, artists on the cutting edge of graphic design experiment with different printing techniques to create groundbreaking works of graphic art for our Graphic Trial exhibitions.
This year marks the 6th Graphic Trial Exhibition, which features works by Kashiwa Sato, Shin Sobue, Naoko Nakui, and Takehisa Yamamoto. Collaborating with them in using offset printing to push the limits of artistic expression were Jun Nakayama, the printing director at Toppan Printing, Masakazu Kaneko, Kazuya Tanaka, and Yuichi Takanami.
Combining the visions of artists with the techniques of printers, the works of graphic art displayed together with the steps involved in their development enable the viewer to gain new insights into the art of printing.
