2022/23 Printmaking Artist in Residence
Taro Takizawa is an artist who focuses on printmaking, wall vinyl installations, drawings and 2D designs. He received his BFA with a printmaking emphasis from Central Michigan University in 2011, and an MFA in printmaking from Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts in 2017. Born in Japan, he makes images connecting his experiences in Japan and the U.S. His works contain both 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, architecture and crafts, all influenced by traditional Japanese patterns from textile designs.
