What is Tachisme?

What is Tachisme?

French abstract painting style that gained popularity between 1940-1950. It is often interpreted as a European equivalent of abstract expressionism. There are however, stylistic differences between the two art types. Tachisme was initially part of Art Informel which in favor of more intuitive expression, left geometric abstraction. Tachisme came as a reaction to artworks of Cubism. However, it is closely related to Informalism.

East Indian ink

East Indian ink is a medium made of fine soot, called lampblack, which is combined with water. The carbon molecules make a black, waterproof ink. It has been used in India since the 4th century BC. Artists use the ink for writing, drawing, and painting.

Drypoint

Printmaking technique belonging to Intaglio family, where an image is skillfully incised to a plate using a hard pointed object or "needle" of a sharp diamond or metal point. Copper was traditionally the plate but nowadays, zinc, plexiglas or acetate are commonly used. Like in etching, drypoint is a little bit easier for a drawing artist to master compared to engraving as the needle technique is closer to the use of a pencil than the burin in engraving.

Wax

Wax is a solid material derived from plant, animal and petroleum sources. Wax can help paints to resist wear. It is used to make sculptures, wax crayons, colored pencils, and for encaustic painting; where colored beeswax shaped with special tools makes raised surfaces.
