Printmaking above all!
The need to convey and reproduce information, especially information contained in images, is the main driving force of civilization. The development of new printmaking techniques constituted significant steps in its development. Woodcut, copperplate, etching, lithography, screen printing, publishing until the digital revolution in the broadest sense of the word with all its variants are the unquestionable backbone of human progress. I could not help but board this magnificent express of pictorial cultural history, occupying and perfecting one compartment, i.e. INTAGLIO.
