About Khyatee Kanchan
There are no upcoming events
I am an Architect by qualification, a Production Designer ( for films and TVCs) by profession and a Printmaker by avocation. I am an Indian Designer based in Germany. I work almost exclusively in the labour intensive medium of Lino printing: cutting and printing each design by hand, so no two prints are exactly the same.
I love the beautiful and messy basics of printmaking. I love the ink under my fingernails and the Lino shavings on the floor.
Just like Picasso said 'I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them'. To me, Printmaking or Drawing is an art of observation. It's about finding something extraordinary in an ordinary place. I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. I see or think those things and create. My art is not limited to the prints I create but to the reactions it creates. I like to sit back and look at the whole thing as if its the storm I am controlling and ideas are turned upside down. And thats when everybody look at things in a different way.
Every print is hand pulled by me, and therefore proudly shows the various marks left from the Lino block, which furthermore give the piece of artwork that unique handmade quality that only Lino prints have. This is all part of the beauty of the medium and why I love Lino printing.
love and sunshine.
