Marta Śliwiak, MA - a doctoral student of JDU has been awarded the Scholarship of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage in the discipline of art and art preservation in the Competition for creative scholarships and scholarships in the field of dissemination of culture for 2021. The project name: MOKULITO- litho print from a wood block.
This type of scholarship is awarded to persons involved in artistic creativity, the dissemination of culture and the protection of monuments; in this case, for the implementation of the project: MOKULITO- litho print from a wood block.
The project objectives:
1. Individual creative development in the field of alternative printing techniques in artistic graphics for the design of an instruction book / manual.
2. Self-study of mokulito litho printing technology. This niche technique originated in Japan. It is used as a matrix of wooden plywood, which is easily accessible and light. This is an interesting alternative to the traditional stone matrix, which is expensive, heavy and hard to access. Potentially, this technique provides printing capabilities from the flat and convex printing area (woodcut and applet).
Promoting mokulito technology as an alternative litho printing technique. Designing an instruction book / manual for the above-mentioned technique in terms of content, didactics and design (entirely proprietary project). Making the publication available in the library.
Increased interest in alternative techniques.
Marta Śliwiak is a doctoral student of the Faculty of Art of Jan Dlugosz University in Częstochowa. Ms Śliwiak is conducting research on alternative litho printing techniques under the supervision of prof. Krystyna Szwajkowska from the Chair of Graphic Arts.
