The craft of Japanese printmaking spread to Europe in the19th century, flourishing in Vienna and Munich with the German Expressionist Movement. Arthur Wesley Dow brought the craft to North America in 1895 and influenced generations of artists with his teachings. Today, the process continues to evolve and assimilate into modern practices.
Hand prints are any images printed by hand instead of an automated or machine printing press. The beauty of hand prints are the variables in inking resulting from the hand application of the ink.
There is something wonderful about building a vague idea and transforming into a tactile medium.
