Sound-In-Line project

Sound-in-Line is special project in which Michael Rogatchi features his artistic visualisation of music, from classic music to jazz. The works are created in Michael’s signature technique of original drawings in Indian ink and his special formula of melted oil pastels. Importantly, all works are created by the artist on Italian hand-made cotton paper with special structure. While creating his drawings, Michael works on his paper exclusively.
