About The Shop

Every item in this shop is an original artwork by Ingo Hermes.

The artworks are printed by Hermes itself except for prints in screen- and riso printing. He uses the following techniques:

• Etching
• Woodcut
• Linocut

Etching is an intaglio printing process. For this, the motif is engraved or eteched with the help of acid into a metal plate. The resulting indentations create the print in this technique.
Wood- and linocut are relief printing processes in which the artwork is cut into a wood or linoleum plate.  The raised areas are printed.

High quality papers and inks are carefully selected and each print is made by hand. Thereby slight differences are created which make each print a unique and original artwork.

If you have any questions check our FAQ or send Ingo an email.
