Monotypes

The monotype is believed to have originated in 1635 with the Italian painter Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione. Chestee produces these unique prints in the same way he did: painting directly onto a smooth plate, then transferring the wet image onto paper.

“The success of the process requires planning ahead, precise execution and intense speed,” says Chestee.
