“Sin Título” (2006) is the first polychromatic print we did with Santiago Ydáñez: a nine-colour silkscreen printed on Minos paper.
With Santiago we had already made some one-colour silkscreen prints, so with “Sin Título” we were going to face Ydáñez’s first polychromatic print. When the artist handed me the stencils he had prepared, I wasn’t sure if it was going to work; he was. And it did.
I was amazed how an image so vehemently traced with thick, impetuous brushstrokes in its different layers, then came to be assembled in such an accurate and precise way.
In the end, this is how screen printers learn from good artists.
The measurements of Sin Título by Santiago Ydáñez are 64×99 cm. We made a print run of 40 copies of this work.
Ydáñez’s work can be found in the collections of the Botín Foundation (Santander), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid) among others.
