Mokulito is an alternative printmaking process based on the principles of Lithography. It was discovered in Japan by Seishi Ozaku, and more currently developed and research by Polish artist based in New York City Ewa Budka.
Ewa rediscovered the practice, pushing it to new limits and passing the technique on to other artists internationally creating her own way called Budkalito. The process combines flat lithographic traces and woodcut marks. Without the use of acids or harsh solvents, the Budkalito process is ideal for beginners and printmakers from all backgrounds.
