KRAKENby LIUMA esercizi di leggerezza
The Kraken is a legendary sea monster of giant size that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. A number of authors over the years have postulated that the legend originated from sightings of giant squids that may grow to 12–15 meters (40–50 feet) in length.
This hand-madeprint represents it in a stylized way and with a graphically pop flair with the technique of linocut.
The linoleography is an artistic printing technique of images and graphics on paper, cardboard or cloth by the use of a matrix obtained for engraving on linoleum. The term "linocut" comes from the name of the media (linoleum) and from the greek "grapho" (write).
Each linocut print is printed to order.Matrix is totaly carved by hand by myself with original illustration . Each print one comes out a little different due to handmade printing process.
