On the Shoulders of Giants is a limited edition screen print by Mychael Barratt. Barratt has brought Oxford to life with this beautifully illustrated map of the famous city.
Silkscreen Print – A printing technique whereby the artist paints glue or stencils their work onto a mesh stretched over a wooden frame. Colour is then pushed through the mesh (which hasn’t been blocked with glue) with a squeegee. This can be done several times, layering different colours to create the image seen before you.
