“Art is a way of survival “

Lithography was born in the 18th century through an accidental exploit of Alois Senefelder, a German playwright, and quickly gained popularity amongst the artisans. The word is derived from two root German words lithos (stone) and graphien (to write). It is unlike other forms of printing that rely on etching as here the original artworks are printed and reproduced on metallic plates or flat stones. Artists engage in lithography through direct drawing on the printing substance by making use of specialized drawing tools like greasy pencils or litho crayons. On the completion of drawing the surface undergoes treatment with chemical etches to make the prints permanent by bonding greasing color onto the surface.
