El Marina - Screen-print

El Marina - screen-print on paper, 2008

I took a 5-week screen-printing workshop at the Lill Street Art Center where I made this piece. It combines a photograph of the El train and one of the Marina Towers. I first painted the paper with acrylic using abstract shapes to echo the shapes of the buildings and train. I then transferred the photo images over the background using several screen-printing techniques.
