Regular price CAD $140.00

Block printing is a very old printing technique that some artist use to hand reproduce their artistic images from a carved material such as wood, linoleum or rubber, that is then covered with ink and then transferred with some pressure onto paper or fabric. Designs can be bold and simple to complex and detailed, depending on what tools the artists have on hand. Not one print is ever exactly the same as the next. Block printing is done one print at a time, thus creating a truly unique hand made replica.

Mitch Adam was introduced to Northwest Coast design and engraving at a young age by his father Ivan Adams, a notary Haida jeweller. However, Mitch only began creating art on a regular basis until 2005. In 2010, he enrolled in Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art in Terrace, B.C. where he learnt Northwest Coast design and carving techniques from celebrated artists such as Stan Bevan (Tahltan/Tlingit/Tsimshian), Dempsey Bob (Tahltan/Tlingit), and Ken McNeil (Tahltan/Tlingit/Nisga'a). Mitch has become a talented designer and wood carver since.
