Kind of Cyan is a studio of two designers specialized in gallery quality cyanotype prints and based between Barcelona and Miami. Among the two of us we have won several art and design awards, and as a collective we were recently awarded the 2018 FAD Arts Prize for best design product in Barcelona.
You can also find our individual artworks as painters and photographers in our gallery. Ryan is a trained photographer and painter and has shown in many galleries and museums in Europe and beyond, and Natalia has over 15 years of experience as a painter and has her work in private collections around the world.
THE CYANOTYPE PROCESS:
The cyanotype process is one of the oldest in the history of photography.
Our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality watercolor paper with a light-sensitive chemical, to then be exposed in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. The print is then washed and fixed, to stop the chemical reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, Prussian Blue image, with absolutely no ink involved.
