    The metalinguistic representation of halftone printing on screen printing.
    Published:
Halftone Lucha
 
Screen printed poster that reflects over the halftone printing technique and the struggle on a registration process of lining different halftone plates (layers) to print several colors.  
 
It is a metalinguistic project, the Luchador is holding printing squeegees on both hands, ready to print, after fighting the registration process.
 
The image composition is based on a picture of Pedro Morales, a Puerto Rican professional wrestler, WWE champion from early 70s. I worked over it in a digital collage process adapting his face to a wrestling mask and attaching squeeges to his hands.
