Kevin Holdaway ARE

Though mainly working with imagery of a topological and personal nature, Kevin's work encompasses all traditional techniques in printmaking, and on a wide variety of subject matter. An enthusiasm for the urban environment, cityscapes, and architecture, creates a clear foundation for much of his work.

Working the majority of the time with relief printmaking, a reduction method, as he enjoys how every mark has to be correct and final as there is no going back.

“I invite the viewer into my work to explore, to take a journey through the many visual layers involved and to discover or reveal something of the moment I experienced. To evoke memories or experiences of their own”.

While prolific in his own practice, Kevin also teaches a wide range of traditional printmaking techniques at De Montfort University in his role as a chief technical instructor.

Kevin has previously won an award from Printmaking Today and has exhibited internationally.

He has been a master printer for various artists, including Fluxus Alison Knowles and Concrete poet Edwin Morgan, and now continues to make traditional prints from his studio in the East Midlands.
