Roman Klonek, born in Kattowitz / Poland, has a spot for old fashioned cartoons and modern block printing styles. In the 90s he studied Graphic Arts in Dusseldorf and discovered a passion for woodcut. With this book the Dusseldorf-based artist gives a detailed insight into the working process and the background of his woodcut prints.
The woodcut technique is particularly interesting, as it is primarily known as a “very old” medium and therefore often creates a surprise effect, especially with contemporary motifs. Feel invited to follow the pages about a variety of whimsical characters, often half animal / half human in preferably curious surroundings and embarrassing situations.
A bizarre balancing act between propaganda, folklore, and pop!
