Mini Etching Press mep6267

About Saverio Korbus Pagni: When Saverio bought his Mini Etching Press, he was studying printmaking by the International School of Graphic in Venice, learning nontoxic printmaking with Roberta Feoli. He started etching in Florence on a scholarship for study at "Il Bisonte" with Manuel Ortega and Vincenzo Burlizzi, then continued at "Studio 74/B" in Milan with Moreno Chiodini. Saverio
is enthusiastic for black manner (mezzotint) and aquatint, working to bring light out of the dark. Mostly, however, he loves to work with colors with the three plate techniques. Information about Saveirio and his art is on Instagram and Facebook.
