VSP friend Stefan Hoffmann recently spent time in Japan working on another excellent project (see it here). While there he met an artist, Taku, that does vertical screen printing. Here’s what Stefan had to say: “I met a vertical screen printer with a really nice technique when I was in Tokyo. No ink, just dirt he found on the street, added some wheat paste, and pushed his mixture through a very coarse mesh. I was amazed about the amount of detail and the thickness  of the ‘ink layer’.” See documentation of Taku’s technique below. Photos by Stefan Hoffmann
