About the Artist

Scott Travis (Seattle) is from Michigan, where he received a BFA with a Printmaking emphasis from Grand Valley State University in 2007.  Scott was awarded a residency in Printmaking from Cork Printmakers in Cork, Ireland in 2010.  Now working at Print Zero in Georgetown, Seattle, Scott is continuing to explore human and animal relations through both printmaking and drawing methods. His work is currently traveling throughout Ireland in a Cork Printmakers exhibition.

Scott received a 2012 GAP to be used for studio rental at Print Zero for one year. Scott’s work uses mythology and allegory to discuss the relationship between human and animal, how human perception of animals influences political opinion, and how reality and mythology co-exist. Scott will complete a series of 20 copper plate etchings investigating human and animal relations. Print Zero will provide him with work space, access to a printing press, etching acid, ink and other tools required to produce this body of work.
