What is Mono-Ha?

Meaning "School of things" Mono-ha originated in Tokyo in the mid-1960s. Instead of traditional artwork, the artists of Mono-ha made use of the different materials and their various properties in their works to show dismay for the industrialization that was occurring in Japan at the time. The movement ended up gaining international attention and is a widely-respected form of art.

Screen prints are usually made on posters, T-shirts, vinyl, stickers and wood or any material usable for this purpose. Screen printing is also a method of stencil printing and is sometimes known as serigraphy, serigraph printing, screen or silk screen.

Tempera is a paint traditionally made with colored pigments and egg yolks. The paint dries quickly and lasts a very long time. Some examples still remain from 100 AD. Modern tempera paint uses glue size with the colored pigments instead of egg yolks.
