Prof. Toshiya Takahama from the Musashino Art University, from Tokyo arrived in Vilnius to give lectures and to lead the printmaking workshop ‘Making copperplate print(intaglio) printed on plaster cubes’.

Prof. Toshiya Takahama wrote: “Generally, copperplate work is printed on paper and framed, and then displayed on a wall in a museum, gallery, or house, in such a careful way as to be protected from any deterioration, such as yellowing, tearing, or molding. This is the ordinary way of being of copperplate prints..” But artists are not ordinary people, especially if you are not “traditional” or commercial artist. So Prof. Toshiya Takahama during his workshop was trying to explain and to learn how to think in printmaking way, in printmaking concept, how using printmaking technologies to create art and art installation.
