Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Don Ed Hardy is Honolulu Printmakers' 2016 Gift Print Artist and Paul Mullowney is the juror of Honolulu Printmakers' 88th Annual Juried Exhibition.
As part of programming for the exhibition, which opens Feb. 24, the two artists—and longtime collaborators—will have a joint conversation on their respective work.
Don Ed Hardy is well known as a highly influential tattoo artist who was instrumental in bringing about the vibrant and diverse contemporary tattoo scene. A Honolulu resident since 1986, Hardy also has deep roots in print culture—he earned his BFA in printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1967, and, since the early nineties, he has been producing prints and editions with master printers and publishers such as Trillium Graphics, Shark’s Ink, and Mullowney Printing.
Paul Mullowney is an experienced educator and a Crown Point Press–trained master printer with a broad and deep skill set in printmaking. A former Maui resident and a past Gift Print Artist himself, Paul currently runs Mullowney Printing, in San Francisco’s Mission District, where this year’s Gift Print was editioned.
