Exploring the Possibilities of Graphic Design through Offset Printing
Graphic Trial 2014 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 9th Graphic Trial Exhibition, which we set this exhibition's theme as "echo" meaning 'sound and voice reach by vibration of the air surrounding it' and 'expression have an effect such like sound ringing'. We're aiming to acquire graphic expression to echo more people mind.
This exhibition features works by Katsumi Asaba, Manabu Mizuno, Rikako Nagashima and Akihiko Nagumo. Collaborating with them in using offset printing to push the limits of artistic expression were the printing directors at Toppan Printing.
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.
