Join us for an evening with artist and current Printmaking Artist in Residence, Taro Takizawa as he gives an in-depth look at his exhibition, Undercurrents!

Taro Takizawa is an artist who focuses on printmaking, wall vinyl installations, drawings and 2D designs. Born in Japan, he has been making images connecting what he has experienced in Japan, where he grew up, and in the U.S. His works contain Western and Eastern aesthetics with an appreciation of traditional printmaking processes and mark-making. He is fascinated with blending the boundaries of contemporary studio practice and traditional processes, printmaking and installations, influenced by traditional Japanese patterns from textile designs, architecture and crafts.

He received his BFA with a printmaking emphasis from Central Michigan University in 2011 and MFA in printmaking from Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts in 2017. Takizawa has exhibited nationally and internationally at Fowler-Kellogg Art Center, PARADOX European Fine Art Forum and its exhibition at CK Zamek in Poznan, Poland; and ArtPrize 10 at Grand Rapids Public Museum, LUX Center for the Arts, Ty Pawb in Wales and China Printmaking Museum. And recently went to artist residencies at Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts in Ithaca, NY, Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland, OH, GoggleWorks in Reading, PA, and Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, Kansas.
