From tradition to contemporary illustration
Linocut derives from the most ancient technique to reproduce images: from China, where it was invented 1800 years ago, it has reached today without losing its strength, its expressive power and the ability to make colors vibrate like few other printmaking techniques. Posters, textiles, books, works of art, street art, the examples are countless. The technique is simple and immediate, but carving away the material to find the desired image can be a challenge; roll up your sleeves, unleash your creativity, dress badly (you will handle a lot of ink) and … sign up!
