Simple but beautiful describes the work by Düsseldorf-based artist Angie Hoffmeister. These prints are eye-catching because of the optical effect created by the printmaking technique called drypoint. This process consists of images carved onto surfaces using sharp, metal-like, diamond-tipped needles.

These three art pieces are gorgeous because they delicately record the facial features of a girl. In addition to delineating the female shape, Hoffmeister added a juxtaposition of the same images into each one of her illustrations that produces an intense blurry and dizzying effect. However, this visual game only makes her art stronger and more meaningful.

The drypoint prints by Angie Hoffmeister are mysterious and mind-blowing; they undoubtedly capture emotions and stunning images.
