I was fortunate enough to have two prints in the 88th annual juried exhibition of Honolulu Printmakers at the Honolulu Museum of Art School, along side with many talented printmakers.
Juror: Paul Mullowney. Longtime Don Ed Hardy collaborator Mullowney will be in residence in February to select work for the Annual Exhibition. Paul is an experienced educator and a Crown Point Press-trained master printer with a broad and deep skillset in printmaking. The former print studio director of Maui's Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center and a past Gift Print Artist, Paul is now based in San Francisco where he runs Mullowney Printing, where this year’s Gift Print is being editioned.
2015 Gift Print Artist: Don Ed Hardy. Well known as a highly influential tattoo artist who was instrumental in bringing about the vibrant, diverse contemporary tattoo scene, Hardy also has deep roots in print culture. He earned his BFA in printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1967, and since the early nineties he has been producing prints and editions with master printers and publishers such as Trillium Graphics, Shark’s Ink, and Mullowney Printing. Hardy has been a Honolulu resident since 1986.
