Cutting edge materials
On Monday, June 19th, as part of OPEN Buenos Aires II Edition, we offered a professional workshop led by David Arteagoitia (Director of the Open Portfolio FIG Bilbao, artist, and PhD in Printmaking). Organized in collaboration with CCEBA—Centro Cultural de España en Buenos Aires, this event was free for all its participants: art professionals, printmaking artists, and those creators interested in exploring new forms of expression in contemporary printmaking.
With the attendance of a large and specialized audience, in “New Horizons” we immersed ourselves in the exciting world of plastic materials and bi-component resins as constructive elements in contemporary printmaking. These modern materials allow us to expand boundaries and develop artistic concepts in printmaking while connecting us with contemporary artistic expressions.
Throughout the workshop, we explored various techniques of artistic printmaking involving the use of plastic materials and bi-component resins. We learned how to use them as matrices to create unique prints and experimented with different methods of application and manipulation. Additionally, we analyzed how these materials and techniques can influence the concepts and messages conveyed through print works. We explored the possibilities of expanded drifts that emerge when combining these materials with other contemporary artistic expressions, such as digital art, street art, or kinetic art.
