About the Artist

Yoshihiro Kitai (Vancouver) received a 2008 GAP for a printing press that may accommodate large-format prints. In making prints, Yoshiro draws from his experience of moving to the United States from Japan and having no facility in the language. He describes his work as “a series of obsessive marks directly on paper.” Yoshiro will make a series of 22” x 30” multi-layered monotype prints with his press, which will be modeled after the design of the Ray Trayle etching press.
