Ivan Messac : (1948-) is a french painter and sculptor, born in Caen (Calvados). In 1969, after he graduated with a Philosophy Master, Ivan Messac participated to the Salon de la Jeune Peinture. He then drew the Salon posters from 1973 to 1974. His works are present in the Pop Art Dictionnary of José Pierre, published in 1974. Although he is younger than ther other artists of the movement « Figuration narrative », he is however associated to it, and he took part in 1977 in the exhibition « Mythologies quotidiennes » at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris. In 1973, he made the decors and costumes of the Ballet Théâtre Contemporain (Contemporary Ballet-Theatre). Ivan Messac also leaned towards sculptures, and worked in Carrare. His first sculptures date back to 1983. Alain Malvoisin wrote an article about him in "Le Dictionnaire de la sculpture moderne et contemporaine" (the Modern and Contemporary Sculpture Dictionnary) published in November 2008. Public commissions offered him the possibility of developing this artistic production. Since 2003, shis work has been shown in several exhibitions dedicated to Narrative Figuration. One of his works was acquired by the Fonds national d'art contemporain (FNAC) (National Fund of Contemporary Art).
Screen print : Screen printing, also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing - from latin "Sericum (silk) and greek "grapheion" (writing) - is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. It is possible to use different meshes, for different colors, and create multi-colored works. In the field of art, it is important to know how many prints have been made. The total number of prints is usually written on the print (e.g 20/200).
