"Antoni Tàpies: Everyday things turned into art" – Part 2
The successful printmaking workshop on learning Tàpies' printmaking techniques in March offered a great insight into the essence of the artist's creativity. This prompted us to continue with another experimental workshop of Tàpies' printmaking techniques in April and May, which will run over the following four Saturdays: 16 April (4 pm–8 pm), 23 April (11 am–6 pm), 30 April (11 am–6 pm) and 7 May (11 am–6 pm).
The workshop is lead by Spanish artist Damiàn Vega Velasco.
The second workshop is also based on the use of the carborundum technique that was often utilised by Tàpies in his graphic works. This time, the process in the workshop will focus on exploring different materials, methods of printing and combinations of carborundum techniques with collagraph techniques, relief printing, as well as other experimental printmaking processes.
Mentor of the workshop:
Damiàn Vega Velasco is a Spanish artist who completed his studies in printmaking techniques at the School of Art in Oviedo (Escuela de Arte de Oviedo).

He lives and works in Slovenia; in April 2016 he is exhibiting in the UAUU gallery in Ljubljana.
