Majority of the artists graduated at Goldsmiths from BA fine arts course in the late 1980s.

A term that refers to both the resulting artwork and the medium. It is a method of painting where the paints used are made of pigments that are suspended in water soluble "vehicle". Watercolors appear luminous and are transparent because the pigments used are laid down in pure form and few fillers obscure pigment colors. By adding Chinese white, watercolor can be made to look opaque.
Etching and Aquatint are terms related to printing. An Aquatint has the master printing plate etched with microscopic pits and cracks to produce unlimited gradations in tone. This helps to re-create the broad and flat tints seen in watercolor drawings and ink washes.
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.
