Print-makers Gathering using the Zoom format:
A Visit with hanga printmaker Kevin Frances (March 7, 2021).
Kevin lives in NYC and works at a studio in the Bronx. He made hanga print-making a focus of his study in graduate school (Kevin earned an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2013). He pursues a very original printmaking process. A model-maker, his print imagery is generated from 3D models that he builds. Super interesting.
