Printmaking Symposium

November 12-15, 2015

in Bentlage, Rheine, Germany

Henk Tichelaar was born in Amsterdam and lives in Kampen, the Netherlands, where he studied graphic art at the Academy of Fine Arts. His work is inspired by landscape and birds. He depicts impressions of walks through landscapes in drypoint and etching, creating an intimate and poetic world. As instructor at the Academy of Art and Design Zwolle he has introduced his students to the technique of electrolytic etching, a process that is better for health and the environment than traditional etching techniques.
