Intaglio Print by Sébastien Theraulaz from “Made by X” Collection

“Made by X” collection:

For the 3rd anniversary of ideas Block we launched an open call for international artists to take part in our fundraiser exhibition to raise money for the future development. 

We gathered a collection of nearly 200 pieces from 15 countries, 38 artists from around the world.

The idea was to keep it anonymous, without letting the audience know the authors of each artwork – to create a guessing game for the audience and even things between the artists from all sorts of contexts. All the artworks were made on an A5 size format and priced equally – 20 eur per piece. In this way we were providing an access to affordable art and and opportunity to purchase art solely based on the work itself and not the name of whom may have made it.

Some of the pieces have been sold during the exhibition, and the rest go online for a flat price of 20 euros.

What is Intaglio Print?
Intaglio printing is the opposite of relief printing, in that the printing is done from ink that is below the surface of the plate. The design is cut, scratched, or etched into the printing surface or plate, which can be copper, zinc, aluminum, magnesium, plastics, or even coated paper.

About the author:

After a short stint at the Université de Lausanne in his native Switzerland, Théraulaz enrolled in the Art Center College of Design (Europe), later completing his studies at their campus in Pasadena, California. In 1997 he set up shop in Montreal and quickly found work with TV productions for a host of different advertising agencies.

The growing demand for contracts led him to found Sub Communications, a design oriented agency in 1999. His versatility as a designer director has made the company a prized resource in Montreals media community. The agency typographic branch (Subtitude foundry) was then founded to developp self-initiated projects such as fonts, illustrations and memorabilia.
After more than 10 years of commercial work, he moved back to his native country. Since then, he focuses on artistic projects and teaching at Ecole Romande de Communications (Eracom).

In 2017, he established his atelier : the Offizielles Büro de l’Image, in the small village of Cully.
