What is drypoint?

What is drypoint?

Printmaking technique belonging to Intaglio family, where an image is skillfully incised to a plate using a hard pointed object or "needle" of a sharp diamond or metal point. Copper was traditionally the plate but nowadays, zinc, plexiglas or acetate are commonly used. Like in etching, drypoint is a little bit easier for a drawing artist to master compared to engraving as the needle technique is closer to the use of a pencil than the burin in engraving.

Transavanguardia

Italian version for Neo Expressionism that refers to an art movement that moved across Italy and some other parts of Western Europe between 1970s and 1980s. It simply means beyond avant-garde. The art movement came as a response to conceptual art's explosion that got many expression mediums by reintroducing emotion and reviving painting. Transvanguardia marked a turning point back to mythic imagery and figurative art which at the time, was rediscovered.

Surrealism

Surrealism began in the 1920s with artists and writers whose works aimed to reveal the unconscious to unleash subconscious imagination, and explore unusual imagery. Bringing the unconscious into rational life was one key thematic goal of this group influenced by Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis theories.

Space Art

Space Art is artistic imagery depicting the space matter of the universe. It began in 1865 with the first illustrations, based on science fact, of A. de Neuvill and Emile Bayard in the novel “From the Earth to the Moon” by Jules Verne.
