About the Artist:
Roman Klonek, born in Kattowitz/Poland is a visual artist based in Düsseldorf.
In the 1990s he studied Graphic Arts in Düsseldorf and discovered a passion for woodcut. Since 20 years, he is creating fantastic illustrated worlds mixing Russian and Japanese folklore & cartoon graphics, with a wide range of whimsical creatures, mostly half animal/half human, preferential in awkward situations, a bizarre balancing act between propaganda, folklore and pop.
His works are created by carving a single plate of wood and printing each color separately.
It means that when the last color has been printed, the wood matrix cannot be used anymore for any other reprint. Printing imperfections are entirely part of the craft process.
