Draw a line

This is a recent collection of prints produced by Harvey Lloyd Screenprint for British graphic artist and illustrator, Adrian Johnson. His work is known for his economical, highly crafted graphic work an his working process all derives from obsessively drawing and re-drawing on paper, breaking down ideas and concepts into their purest form.
Size of the prints is 400x360mm, portrait. They are six-colour screen prints and are printed on our Matrisse 200gsm. Matrisse is a tactile uncoated white board with a high bulk and is perfect for silkscreen work.
You can see and read more about the project here:
Adrian Johnson relentlessly aspires to seek balance between simplicity and sophistication, he is reductionist at heart. In October he gave a talk and workshop at the Apple Store on Regent Street, London about distilling ideas and images through reduction. In his words... "I'll be working with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to help illustrate how my working process involves taking on board a plethora of information, and how I reduce this information into 'simple yet sophisticated' illustration and graphic art". 
Adrian Johnson's work has been exhibited in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. He lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The prints are produced in an edition of 25 copies. and have been beautifully printed by Harvey Lloyd Screenprint, who are based in Wadhurst, East Sussex.
