Event Description

This workshop will give a basic introduction to the relief printmaking using the linocut technique. Relief printing refers to a technique where images are transferred to paper from the raised portion of a carved or etched block. In this technique  drawings are made on a linoleum block and the negative space is carved out from the desired areas. In the next stage  ink is applied on the surface using a roller. Finally  prints are taken using a manual spooning technique  which applied pressure to the ink and paper transfers the image to paper. The first half of the session the workshop will be dealing with a single color on the surface. The second session will be the introduction of multicolor on the different block either using the stencil technique or reduction method. Sajeev Vadakoottu Visweswaran is a visual artist based in New Delhi and Ann Arbor. While he works in many media and styles, drawing always comes at the center of his work. He has maintained a focus on minimalist lines and measures etchings throughout his repertoire. Sajeev’s works draw on the tension between the mundane activities of everyday life and his political sensibilities, between his young life in village India and the world of fine art. He is fascinated by the intersection of the personal and the political, presence and absence, the domestic and the public. Sajeev received his training from the College of Art, New Delhi where he received his BFA, before completing his MVA at M.S. University, Baroda. His first solo show was held at 1,Shanthi Road, Bangalore in 2014, and his works have been selected for several exhibitions and group shows across India, as well as in Korea, Romania and France. He has attended residencies at 1,Shanthi Road, Bangalore in 2014 and the ‘Residence Price’ at the 13th Biennale Internationale de Gravure de Sarcelles, France in 2008. His work was recently displayed at the International Print Center NY, “Multilayered “, Print Summer exhibition, and selected for The Fifth Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland in Sfântu Gheorghe, Romania in 2018.
