Linocuts by Martina Gracin.
Many prints waiting....
One of the basic characteristics about the art of printing is that, after you prepare a block or a plate, you can ink it and print more than one original. That is what I teach kids at school.
During my own studies at the Academy, I developed a passion for a specific printing technique- the linocut technique. It started with the motives of dark streets and grew to a nearly one square meter big abstract prints. And there it stopped, and my interests turned to other techniques.
After returning to my passion for carving linoleum blocks I realised that the multiple original prints are ready for the next logical step.
And that was packaging them up and sending them out into the world.
I graduated in 2002. at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia. I love all sorts of printing techniques, especially lino printing in one or more colours.
