AKROS Le Acqueforti
Carvings have covered the walls of caves, trace the black figure on Greek pottery and were the graffiti decorating walls in Pompei and Ercolano. Such etchings have a rich history and can trace the development of mankind.
Acqueforte, the technique of etched engravings onto a surface, was born during the Renaissance. Its complex processes create unique and original engravings that once used to produce a few copies were destroyed to avoid them ever being made again. Acquaforte allows artistic creations that are truly unique decorative forms born of both fantasy and manual expertise.
