All materials will be provided.
*Workshop pricing is per person attending.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Kim Baise is a Los Angeles-based artist and designer with a master's in printmaking and sculpture from NYU. Using papier mache and organic and repurposed materials, her mobile constructions and figurative assemblages embody the energy of her mark-making. While referencing traditional Cartoneria her ice cream trucks, she-ra feministas, and crying eyes reveal her own visual narrative on the everyday. Kim has taken her personal aesthetic of bright colors and bold shapes to create woodblock prints that are fresh, modern and raw. Instead of using a printing press she uses a wooden spoon to press her images by hand (as taught by MOMA artist Zarina Hashmi). She is also a printmaking student of the great viscosity print inventor, Krishna Reddy. Jikits is the result of Kim's playing in her own creative inner world. Her works can be found at One Kings Lane, West Elm, Crate and Barrel Kids, Gorman, Nickey Kehoe, Menil Collection, PMCA and more!
