Image forming apparatus and image forming method

Abstract

The image forming apparatus includes: an intermediate transfer body; a first liquid application device which applies a first liquid containing an aggregating agent on the intermediate transfer body; a second liquid application device which applies a second liquid containing a solvent-insoluble material on the intermediate transfer body, the solvent-insoluble material being induced to form an aggregate by the aggregating agent to form an image on the intermediate transfer body; and a transfer device which transfers the image formed on the intermediate transfer body to a recording medium, wherein conditions of t>2>1 and g>2>1 are satisfied, where t is a surface energy of the intermediate transfer body, 1 is a surface energy of the first liquid, 2 is a surface energy of the second liquid, and g is a surface energy of the aggregate of the solvent-insoluble material.
