Landfill/Manymono brought its Risograph printer to Pick Me Up Graphic Art fair, creating limited edition prints for an affordable £12.
Landfill/Manymono is an independent London studio, publishing prints, comics and magazines, and for the show, the studio relocated its Risograph machine to Somerset House.
Explained as ‘a cross between a silkscreen and litho in the body of a photocopier’, the Japanese machine works by printing each colour separately; the colour coming through a drum inside the machine. The palette of colours has an strong Japanese feel, such as almost fluorescent candy pink, chrome yellow and strong cobalt blue and jade green tones.
Limited to 100 copies, the prints were designed by artists such as Scott Barry, Adrian Fleet, Micah Lidberg, Brecht Vandenbroucke and Chris Pell.
