In the tradition of the Polish School of Printmaking. Since 1950 polish printmakers developed the technique of point linocut. The artist brings out a wide range of shades of grey from the linoleum plate by means of innumerable amount of small points of varied intensity. The more white dots, the more light. The linoleum plate is usually cut with a sharp-pointed chisel, but “maniac” printmakers use veterinary needles.
