About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
Although the balloons in Monro’s screenprint are little more than coloured circles of varying size, the print is extremely evocative of the race that Monro is depicting, with its effective use of space and movement. Monro used screen printing for his pop art prints, a technique where mesh is used to transfer ink onto a surface. Layers of ink can be built up, with some areas protected from saturation by blocks or ink-resistant coatings.
