Known as the “painterly print”, the monoprint is a simple and easy printmaking technique which facilitates an image similar to a painting. Monoprints are known for their richness of tone, fluidity, and spontaneous manner. Created by painting directly on a plexiglass plate, a monoprint completed by running the plexiglass plate through a printing press to fabricate a unique print.
