David CurcioAmerican, b. 1972
Inspired by Outside Art, David Curcio began making embroidered drawings and quilts as a way of getting away from printmaking into a new and totally unfamiliar medium. His latest series Yakuza Graveyard marks his return to woodcut.
David Curcio received his MFA at Pratt Institute in New York in 2001. While teaching printmaking abroad, he furthered his education in etching at Il Bisonte Scuola della Grafica in Florence and completed a residence in Japanese woodcut in Awaji-Shima Japan. Curcio’s work has recently been included in Japanese Woodblock Print Workshop: A Modern Guide to the Ancient Art of Mokuhanga, a book about American artists working in the Japanese print medium.
