EPISODE TWENTY-TWO | GREGORY SANTOS
In this episode of pine|copper|lime Miranda speaks with Gregory Santos, Instagram lithographer extraordinaire. Santos builds and tends to an expansive online community based on being open about the trials and tribulations of printmaking’s most mercurial medium. We talk about the need for honesty in social media, and to move away from the shiny perfection which is so often touted as a real life. As well as Santos’ ambitious print exchange Mixed Grit, for which he mails four small lithography stones to printmakers around the country, who draw on them, and then mail them back. Santos documents all of this with transparency, humour, and an eye toward digital community building on a global scale.
