According to a release, “the design was acquired based on … the attention to detail in making each repeat unique. The diversity within the print run is the result of an elaborate monoprint technique where four to six artists paint into a screen using brushes, spray bottles, pallet knives, and squeegees to create blends and textures and then print that screen to create a flat layer. The Marilyn outline is then printed over the one-of-a-kind monoprint background.” (Watch a video of the process here.)
