What is Transvanguardia ?
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.Artwork by Francesco Clemente

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.
