Artist and master printmaker Kevin Holdaway is a member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, internationally exhibited, and a Printmaking Today Award winner. While prolific in his own practice, he teaches a wide range of traditional printmaking techniques at De Montfort University in his role as a technical instructor.
Though mainly working with imagery of a topological and personal nature, his work encompasses all traditional techniques in printmaking, and on a wide variety of subject matter. An enthusiasm for the urban environment, cityscapes, and architecture, creates a clear foundation for much of his work.
After more than thirty four years as a relief printmaker he continues to develop through a personal focus that is resolute and promises to provide us with new insights into the heritage that is our city streets, for many more years to come.
“I invite the viewer into my work to explore, to take a journey through the many visual layers involved and to discover something of the moment I experienced, or, to evoke memories of their own”.
