Suminagashi is a classic Japanese technique for painting on water, the name of which literally means "floating ink". At first glance, it is simple as such are the materials used – water, ink and "anti-ink"). However, this technique requires extreme concentration and attention, because the final result depends on a variety of factors – from the air temperature to the inner attitude and energy the artist emantes. The symbiosis of planned and accidental allows for endless creative improvisations, and the range of end results extends from authorship works to the technique being applied in the field of bookbinding and calligraphy.
The event will be held on 11 November (Friday) at 1:30 pm under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Kristina Borisova and Asst. Prof. Dr. Rada Pilyushka in the Poster and Visual Communication Atelier 404 in the new academic building of the National Academy of Art – Sofia, 1 Shipka Street.
The creative workshop is part of the events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Poster and Visual Communication as an academic speciality at the National Academy of Art.
