Vladimir Mejia2012
When I originally became interested in Jeff Koons’ work I was intrigued by his attitude towards art and I found I could relate to a lot of his ideas.  I decided that for my final intaglio assignment of copying a work of art, I would try to depict Warhol’s influence on Koons’ work.  I decided to base my print off of Jeff Koons’ “Hand on Breast” from his “Made in Heaven” series, with “Rabbit” serving as a backdrop.  I felt the image would equate the idea of influence to intimacy.  I used two plates for the print.  One holds “Rabbit” the other a contour line drawing.  Both plates were etched with hard ground for the line work.  The “Rabbit” plate was aquatinted and chin-colle was used to attach the yellow tissue paper to the second plate.

Blindness
Vladimir Mejia2012

For my last intaglio project I had to make a print incorporating color on a song of my choosing.  I wasn’t allowed to be literal with the lyrics and was told to focus on the sound.  After much debate I decided to base a print on Jack White’s cover of U2’s “Love is Blindness.”  Personally the structure of the song plus Jack White’s howling made me think of the idea of falling forever.  So I went with the image of falling figures on a dark blue background which I feel gives the sense of infinite space.

"Three Buscemi’s" 
Vladimir Mejia2011
This piece is the first in what I hope becomes a series of stamp prints based around recognizable eyes.  I have a fascination with eyes and how they can capture so much of a persons character.
