Human form in front of abstract, colored shapes
A master print maker and artist, Takeshi Takahara uses the intaglio process to produce his dramatically beautiful prints. Takahara prefers the process of printmaking as a medium because it allows him to develop and revise each piece in the process. The process, unlike traditional printing, allows him to render a one of a kind and dimensional print with no glass and no frame. He prints using Japanese gampi paper because of its strength and transparency. Takahara is a professor at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design.
