ARTWORKS RELATED TO ORPHISM
A visual art closely related to writing. It is the production of decorative lettering or handwriting using a brush or a pen. Contemporary calligraphy refers to giving of forms to signs in an harmonious, expressive and a skillful manner. It ranges from functional designs and inscriptions to pieces of fine arts where letters may be readable or not.
Computer printing in its basic form is the process of using computer technology to reproduce fine art images to make prints. In more advanced techniques, artists can program computers to produce art images which are then transferred onto paper using printing technology.
Depending on the artist's intention, body print may be executed in different ways that include smearing of grease or margarine on the skin, hair and clothes or by pressing oneself against a piece of paper then dust the oiled imprint with the pigment on the ground. The artist's body acts as the common printing plate, the "body print" however, does not work or act as a self portrait. It rather explores 2 competing identity conceptions.
