Exploring the Possibilities of Graphic Design through Offset Printing
Graphic Trial 2017 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 12th Graphic Trial Exhibition.
This exhibition features works by Masayoshi Nakajo, Jianping He, Yuni Yoshida and Shohei Sawada. Collaborating with them in using offset printing to push the limits of artistic expression were the printing directors at Toppan Printing.
This year's theme is "Fusion". This is the era of instant global communication, unshackled from the limits of time and space. New sources of creativity are being formed at the intersections through which technologies and ideas flow freely between different peoples and cultures. Witness a artists and Toppan Printing Directors working on the front lines of design.
