Damon Kowarsky : Australian Printmaker

(a collabaration with Kyoko Imazu)


 Kyoko Imazu and Damon Kowarsky met at Australian Print Workshop in 2008 and have collaborated since 2010.
Their work explores themes including nature, science, art and technology in a globalised world.

Using a very simple methodology
    1. Damon gives Kyoko a pencil drawing
    2. Kyoko vandalises what he's done
    3. Damon draws his parts on a copper plate
    4. Kyoko does her bits
    5. Etch the plate together!
they have produced works of great subtlety, variety and humour.

Kyoko and Damon are currently artists in residence at Trinity Grammar School Kew, where they print on a regular basis.
