About Alfons Bytautas
There are no upcoming events
In 1983 he studied in Paris at the celebrated printmaking studio, Atelier 17 – the studio of S.W. Hayter. In 1994 he was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Scottish Academy, becoming an Academician in 2006.
As a printmaker, Alfons Bytautas has contributed greatly to research pioneered at Edinburgh Printmakers to develop etching techniques that virtually eliminate the use of hazardous substances. He has directed numerous workshops, demonstrating these methods, throughout the UK and in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain & Japan.
As well as being an accomplished artist in his own right, he is also a master-printer and has worked with many of Scotland’s most prestigious artists such as Alan Davie, Callum Innes, John Bellany, Barbara Rae and Peter Howson.
For many years, Alfons’ work was figurative, he now explores an area somewhere between abstraction and figuration. His recent series of works are abstracted portrait heads, exploring themes of identity & perception of the other/self.
