Jealous Print Studio recently completed six large scale digital print works with screen overlays for Canadian artist Patrick Rochon and SMC Design.
The brief was to create an art work that would glow when hit with a black light, giving the pieces by Patrick Rochon two elements to view and excite. After several months of discussion and proofing the pieces were put in to production. The pieces are large digital prints on Somerset Satin Enhanced 330 gsm paper that have then been mounted and sealed before a halftone image is screen printed using OBA (Optical Brightening Agent Ink) over the face of the work. The OBA appears clear to the eye allowing the image underneath to be viewed until the black light is shone across the surface and the new imagery comes to life in the dark.
The works will now be installed in to bowling alley in a huge new cruise ship that is being launched later
this year in Hong Kong. Jealous favourite Jacky Tsai has
also been commissioned by SMC Design for
this project, with one of his works being used as the design painted on to the hull of the ship. Images of this will follow later this year.
