Goals
$0 of $600 per month
I am a multidisciplinary visual artist whose primary focus is Printmaking. I want to expand my printmaking practice by learning Japanese traditional woodblock printing and later, to work on how the technique can be used in traditional and contemporary ways.
The Mokuhanga Innovation Laboratory is the program with the residency of five weeks studying the fundamental skills of traditional Japanese image production technique which is rooted in the traditions of ukiyo-e printing. Also, the residency provides an opportunity to experience the rich culture of Japan, where Mokuhanga is an essential part of cultural history.
After a selection process, I was invited to take part in this program (it's so exiting!). However, the residency at the Mokuhanga MI-LAB is a self‐supported program, and the participation fee is the artist’s responsibility.
I believe that this residency would promote and expand the development of my printmaking practice. With this experience I could explore, broaden and build up my new printmaking techniques using different environment friendly materials. I would love to introduce the ancient Japanese technique in to my contemporary art practice.
My goal is to continue printing in the Mokuhanga technique, and share this process with people. But to realize this project I need your support!
