EDSON IKE

"Unlike digital, the illustrator Edson Ikê immerses himself in the production of woodcuts on Brazilian mythologies. In a special box, it gathers 15 woodcuts that illustrates the indigenous myth of Tupã, imaginary beings, fish, dragons, people of popular culture, birds, in a rustic woodcut atmosphere, can print delicacy and beauty in their cuts, with strong reference to Afro- job.
Woodcutting is one of the oldest techniques of image reproduction, recording its practice by the Chinese about thirty thousand years ago. The engraving is obtained through cuts and incisions made on the surface of the wood, as demonstrated in the video produced by the artist about this process."
