I (Heart) Gocco

Not long ago, The Wurst Gallery in Portland (one of my favs!) held an exhibit called "We Heart Gocco", the focus of which was on artwork created with the much-beloved Japanese tabletop screenprinting device the Gocco Printer. It is muy impressive to see how different artists have utilized the gadget's capabilities. You can still purchase some of the prints online at the gallery's website. Here are two examples of the 14 prints available, "Little Love" by Mizna Wada (above) and "Love with a Needle" by Evan B. Harris (below). Click here for The Wurst Gallery

Here's a little video on how to make a Gocco print:
