AboutEwa Budka is ELP's current self funded resident. She has recently graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Here she worked closely with the Academy of Katowice researching an alternative printmaking process Mokulito.
Mokulito is an alternative printmaking process based on the principles of Lithography. It was discovered by Professor Seishi Ozaku in Japan over 30 years ago. His process replaces the traditional Bavarian slate used in lithography with a plate of plywood, which possesses the same characteristics as the Lithographic stone. Using a plywood matrix, allows the artist to make up to 25 prints. The discovery of Mokulito by Prof. Ozaku has allowed a blend of purely lithographic traces and sharp woodcut marks.
Without the use of acids or harsh solvents, the Mokulito process is ideal for beginners and printmakers from all backgrounds.
Her research has been awarded a scholarship in the U.S, she has lectured about her findings internationally and it has now brought her here to the UK where she continues to develop her practice.
Ewa will be running this one off course at ELP in June.
