“This drawing of a head is the first of its kind. This piece happened by mistake, but I was pleasantly surprised by it’s result. The art work reminded me of old x-ray photos which perfectly fit my personal fascination of the human anatomy and it’s vast diversity in detail and layers (bones, blood veins, muscles, skin etc.)
Together with LEAP Art Prints we interpreted this piece in a screen print using colors and silver pigments which bring humble reflection to the edition. The selection of the right tones and pigments result in a very interesting effect, especially when looked at from different angles.”

“Sometimes, when I draw the line movement is different. It becomes cleaner, dirtier, rounder, straighter… None of my drawings are alike, and I learn every single time from those little shifts – It’s them that bring evolution to my line.” – Martin Tardy

This is the first screen print edition by Viennese artist Martin Tardy created together with LEAP. The artist picked three artworks from his private collection to be reproduced in close collaboration with LEAP and published in a small edition on carefully selected papers. Each of these pieces stand for a certain change in the body of work by Martin Tardy evolving over the years.
