Blotter paper is interesting not only because of its absorbing qualities, but also, on a cultural level because of the connotations that this characteristic creates. As a result, blotter paper is associated with liquid drugs, most commonly LSD. This is one of the reasons that contemporary artists become interested in the use of this peculiar medium. Some of them do not hesitate to incorporate the use of this material with themes directly associated with drug use, such as Ben Frost, Denial and Ron English. Others prefer a more subtle reference to drugs, leading to a still psychedelic result. Smileys, trippy mazes and colorful compositions are some of the favorite subjects that make up for what we call Blotter Art.
