London-based printmaker Ricky Byrne is known for his refined screen printing process, which draws together the traditional and the digital for a strong, contemporary aesthetic.

Ricky’s prints combine subject study, photography, and digital manipulation, incorporating the CMYK and hand gilding processes to create rich and arresting visuals. His prints are often minimalist - think stripped back monochrome palettes teamed with forceful compositions - for an aesthetic that stops you in your tracks.
Alongside making his own prints, Ricky is a Screenprinting tutor, and a professional printmaker as part of Mesh & Blade, a printing service he co-founded with a close friend and business partner.’
