Exploring the Possibilities of Graphic Design through Offset Printing

Graphic Trial 2018 represents an attempt to explore the relationship between graphic design and the art of printing in order to discover new forms of expression. Every year, artists on the cutting edge of graphic design experiment with different printing techniques to create groundbreaking works of graphic art for our Graphic Trial exhibitions.

This year marks the 13th Graphic Trial Exhibition.

This exhibition features works by Akira uno, Santi Lawrachawee, Yoshihiro Yagi and Haruyuki Suzuki. Collaborating with them in using offset printing to push the limits of artistic expression were the printing directors at Toppan Printing.

This year’s theme is “Passion”. This is the era of instant global communication, unshackled from the limits of time and space. New sources of creativity are being formed at the intersections through which technologies and ideas flow freely between different peoples and cultures. Witness a artists and Toppan Printing Directors working on the front lines of design.

What is Graphic Trial?

This yearʼs theme is “Passion”—a strong emotion or boundless enthusiasm, a concept contrary to reason.Addictions to “things” and powerful emotions like love, desire, anger, hate, sorrow, and joy have always driven people to create.The passions of eminent creators have inspired the printing directors at Toppan to express various dimensions of Passion using techniques and sensibilities that embody their hearts.
