This publication was made to accompany David Krut Projects Cape Town’s showcase The Colourist Manifesto, a group exhibition of David Krut associated artists, working with colour in print, which opened on Saturday the 17th of March 2018. Traditionally, printmaking has existed within a monochromatic realm. However, there are artists who have worked in the David Krut Workshop (DKW) that have dived deep into the rich world of colour using printmaking. It is through this showcase that we explored and celebrated the use of colour in various printmaking techniques and the artist’s and DKW’s collaborative approach to printmaking.
The Colourist manifesto booklet includes the artist’s relationship with colour in printmaking, their use of techniques and influences relating to the use of colour in print. The exhibition and manifesto acts as a platform to inform the public about the possibilities of printmaking, which isn’t as black and white as it may seem.
