Using ancient, traditional printmaking methods and materials, award-winning artist/master-printmaker, Ian Kochberg, has dedicated himself to creating unique works of art over the past four decades,
This past year, Ian has been working passionately, to fuse these time-honoured techniques with modern technology. Working layer upon layer upon layer, he marries intricate calligraphic illuminations with selected quotations and music. Each of these 15-20 layers is individually and meticulously hand-drawn onto a specialized fine art drawing tablet. Finished works are then printed with permanent, pigmented inks onto a German, 100% rag paper, and archival framed by the artist.
With his use of a traditional colour palette along with his signature intricate linework, the look of these new works is distinctively “Ian”. This adaptation of new and ancient media has enabled him to create custom, one-of-a-kind commissions. Between wedding, anniversary, birthday and christening, to corporate gifts, presentations and awards, it’s obvious that the possibilities are endless.
