Lithograph Handmade Enhanced Painting by Zoer & Velvet

Lithograph Handmade Enhanced Painting by Zoer & Velvet


The third edition by online art gallery Sold Art is a lithograph handmade enhanced painting by Zoer & Velvet.
Following the exhibition L’Etat Limite in Tokyo, curated by Takashi Murakami, Zoer and Velvet spent five days in the URDLA workshop in Villeurbanne (France) to create this lithograph on stone entitled Street Food.

Fascinated by Tokyo’s rich visual culture, architecture and lifestyle, the two French artists have translated what their regard as the characteristic elements of this city into this lithograph. The photographic work they did on that trip was the starting point for composing this genre art scene of the popular kind.
They started by selecting, assembling and cutting their photographs. They then used drawing to create arrangements, priorities and suggestions through their art. The handmade line enhancing technique enriches every lithograph with a new background and new details gravitating in the composition, thus changing
the view on each work and making each piece unique.
This edition project represented for Velvet & Zoer the opportunity to discover this printing process. Drawing with a lithographic crayon and never coming into physical contact with the stone was a challenge for the artists, a new way of conceiving the drawing technique.
Street food works like a tribute to Japanese prints, or ukiyo-e, which revealed the lifestyle and new culture of the urban and mercantile society of the Edo period.
