MONOtypes and mixed media

A crisis can be an opportunity! During the first Covid-19 -related lockdown in April 2020 I discovered a new technique, monoprinting with a gelatine based GelPress plate and acrylics, using an endless variety of mark-making tools I find in the nature or at home - or make myself. I was instantly addicted and wanted to learn more, how to express my joy of life using this technique.

I also learned different image transfer techniques. Now I can combine all these as I wish, to fascinating and one-of-a-kind  mixed media artworks.

My monotypes and mixed media works are  available directly from me, and at TAIKO ART online gallery https://www.taiko.art/raxu-helminen as well as  the new ARTIKAS platform https://artikas.org/.
