About the work

"A technique called Mixed Media of Printmaking and Collage"

I create mainly mixed media artwork, combining a collage of copperplate-made-etched prints on Japanese paper, watercolors, Chinese ink.

The colors particularity of my work come from the infinite possibility of prints, which I use like a painter uses different paint colors. I made them with different types of Japanese paper, different thicknesses and textures in various colors and designs.


At a time when I was thinking about how to make a living as a professional printmaking artist, I realized that I couldn't make a work bigger than the size of the copperplate itself, so I decided to explore different possibilities that allowed me to maintain good quality and to be as much as possible free in my artistic expression.

As a result of many trials and errors, I came to use this mixed media technic by using collage that allows me to create artwork without any size restrictions and to express my unique artistic vision.
