WITH AKUA COLORS
the painterly qualities of monotype using Akua Kolor and Akua Intaglio water-based inks while working with Julio Valdez. Learn methods for brushing, rolling, layering, overprinting, viscosity roll
ups, and specific printing techniques for printing with or without a press. Valdez will offer tips on color mixing, modifying and demonstrate the uniqueness of Akua water-based inks.
Valdez's oevre attest to the significant role that printmaking can
play in an artist's career. The texture, tonality, and layering of
Valdez's prints, as well as the physicality of his processes, are
linked to the meaning and symbolism of his work. As with his mixed-media
paintings, Valdez describes his hand application of materials to the
printing plate as a way of paying homage to ancient cultural traditions
of Africa and Latin America..."
