This is a monotype print done by Stuart Shils who is a mainly painter and monotype printer. To achieve this print, Shils had to first paint this image onto a surface which he then laid paper over, transferred the image, and peeled back. This particular method of printing is interesting because they have to actually paint the image and then can usually only make one print of the image because most of the paint is transferred the first time. I think it is interesting that he would chose to make this a print rather than just painting it.
