Endo Mika

Endo Mika is a Japanese print artist.

 

Mezzotint technique starts off by roughening the copper plate surface into what appears like sandpaper. Then the artist ‘carves’ his image into the roughened surface by removing part of the surface. Thus after applying ink on the plate, the ‘carved’ out spaces will not take up the ink and the ‘un-curbed spaces’ will take the ink.
