About the Element

About the Print
The image was silkscreened by me onto kraft paper, two colors used black and yellow. As for inspiraion, since the theme seem to me more educational... I though it would be fun to show the element in a more different way, as to where it is found (bannanas) and what the element was classified as : metal... so I thought that making a structural banana with plates jumping into the foreground and informing the viewer some basic data, the atomic number and name of the element... I thought that it was just fun, in total four different facts are being told about the element in the image. I also love bananas... so i was really excited when doing it.
