Who is Arzanart
Thanks to our media sponsor for this event:
This art form allows you to design and create decorations from oil paints floating on water. The resulting patterns recall marble or stone veining.
Using a number of simple tools (combs), complex and evocative compositions can be created.
The technique was first employed in East Asia in the ninth century A.D. and expanded to the Middle East around the fifteenth / sixteenth century.
First used in Venice in 1600, marbled paper was a decorative element for book covers and other objects.
