Painterly Graphics was a project led by Julio Valdéz. The Dominican artist traveled to Buenos Aires to teach a workshop on Silk-aquatint, a non-acidic and non-toxic technique that has been described as a hybrid between painting and engraving, since it incorporates characteristics of both disciplines. A group of artists from Argentina, the United States, Belgium and Sweden worked in collaboration for two weeks. In addition, two renowned Argentine artists were invited to interact with the workshop participants: Mabel Rubli and José Marchi.
