CoBrA stands for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam; this group was formed with a desire to break away from the then existing movements. The Western society criticisms made it experimentally evolve to become a reputable international movement. CoBrA was started by Karel Appel, Joseph Noiret, Corneille, Christian Dotremont, Constant and Asger Jorn on November 8th 1948 at Notre Dame Cafe, Paris where its manifesto was signed. Their unifying factor was the need for freedom of both form and color and their working was based on experiment and spontaneity.
Computer printing in its basic form is the process of using computer technology to reproduce fine art images to make prints. In more advanced techniques, artists can program computers to produce art images which are then transferred onto paper using printing technology.
Depending on the artist's intention, body print may be executed in different ways that include smearing of grease or margarine on the skin, hair and clothes or by pressing oneself against a piece of paper then dust the oiled imprint with the pigment on the ground. The artist's body acts as the common printing plate, the "body print" however, does not work or act as a self portrait. It rather explores 2 competing identity conceptions.
