’The Art of Printing’ is a reportage consisting of three episodes covering the printing methods of lithography, wood engraving and etching. Throughout each printing technique we follow the work and cooperation between printing specialist and artist from sketch to the finished prints. We get a unique insight behind each of the methods but also the artist’s process and thoughts when working with new materials and techniques.
Lithography is printing with a very special type of stone as the printing surface. In this episode we experiences the artist Michael Kvium and master printer Rasmus Urwald throughout the process of printing 28 huge and complicated pieces of ”Asmodeus Afkom”. We experience the mind of Kvium when he works and learn more about the difficulties and the art that makes lithography.
