intaglio + litho
Series Details

This is only a small portion of Ivo's prints, predominantly from the period 1985-88. The main medium is intaglio on copper. While working with AIC Fine Arts in Los Angles, CA, the gallery owner William Ward III initiated producing a series of 18 ca gold plated print plates, essentially cancelled at the final print, to be framed with the last of the edition as a collector's item. All artworks are in very limited editions of 10. During the tumultuous years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, some of the original plates were lost from Ivo's studio in Sofia. All copper plates, produced at the printmaking facility of the School of Arts, Washington University in Saint Louis, MO, were essentially put through the gold plating cancellation process and framed accordingly. Some of them were also hand-colored with auqarelle and feature an artist auto-glyph below the main image.

Sizes vary from 4"x6" to 30"x22". Typically printed on archival 300g Arches or Fabriano art paper. All prints are signed, stamped and numbered.
