Multi-color woodblock printing is a very challenging process to create a vibrant image. Enjoy this footage and see how the different layers are stacked on top of each other to create a unique piece of art.
The authentic woodcut with several plates is a very time-consuming and difficulty process to produce a coloured print. For the numerous subtle colour nuances, the artist Olaf Hoppe had to cut up to seven different wooden plates and print them on top of each other with millimetre precision. With this specialised technique, the artist is internationally recognised.
