In 2007, during his exhibition The Air is on Fire at the Fondation Cartier, David Lynch discovered the lithography studio Idem in the Montparnasse area of Paris. He fell completely in love with this traditional technique, which is slowly disappearing. From that point onwards, David Lynch spent long sojourns in Paris, quickly acquiring this
skill. He participated in the life of the studio, making his own lithographs each year, in which his inspirations, somber style, and black humor are evident.
