Graphite Monotype on Paper
22 x 30 in.

Graphite Monotype or NINA is the name I gave to the printing technique, which consists in a mixture of direct drawing on prepared plates with graphite, printed through a mono-type process.The translation of the drawing into a graphic media is the main motive to achieve this type of printing. Nina is a flat bed printing process with a lithographic resemblance. The hole approach is the mixture between dry materials, oil based inks and the repeal it creates with the water.
