Studying Expressionism inspired us in the creation of these prints. In these days there is an important exhibition in Genova about German Expressionists, and we thought to do some works inspired by them. Using the matrixes made of a special gum called Adigraf, we have lanced the “expressionist” faces, imitating the woodblock prints of German artists of the early decades of the century. The newness was to print these faces on different types of paper, such as newspaper and color images. The different background will make the printing more interesting because you can see a sign, a landscape, a figure or a work of art. We had fun in the experimentations, and in the pictures you can find the process of printing and the results

These are Fantastic! Love the use of different papers!
Yes Mary! The idea began from a mistake, one student put his print accidentally on a magazine’s page and… here we are! 🙂
