Engravist, has gained an inspirational structure with sustainable methods by expanding its range with the experience by bringing more activities to the world art environment.
It will be the world’s first virtual art biennial
In 2018, it took the first step of the biennial by organizing an exhibition with around 250 works by 200 artists from 16 countries. The dream of Engravist for 2020 was to increase the number of artists and to reach more countries and to make a printmaking biennial. Due to the pandemic process in the world, this dream was brought to digital environment.
Called for artists with the “What would you like to say about a better World?” slogan, hundreds of artists from all over the world participated. As a result of the jury evaluations, the artists to take part in the biennial were determined. “International Virtual Engravist Printmaking Bienal” will bring together art lovers in 7 virtual galleries with 54 countries, more than 600 artists. “International Virtual Engravist Printmaking Bienal” due to be opened on the 12th June 2020, will be the first virtual art biennial in the world.
Art events at the international level allow, countries at closed poles and people unaware of each other, to create awareness about each other. In this context, the scope of meeting the global dimension with the power of the virtual environment is expanding. International Virtual Engravist Printmaking Bienal also offers artists the opportunity to present themselves at an international platform as an art event held on a local stage but moved into a universal level.
Organizing “International Printmaking Events”, Engravist was founded in 2016 by Assoc. Dr Lütfü Kaplanoğlu. The name “Engravist” was created by combining the English word “engraving”, which means engraving, scraping, and the “ist” suffix that makes it meaningful. “International Istanbul Engravist Printmaking Events” in Turkey, in scope and action is known as the first of its kind.
Since 2016, 1 international symposium, many workshops and exhibitions have been organized by Engravist. In addition to world-renowned artists and academicians, young artists also took part in the projects. Furthermore, social responsibility projects were also supported. Printmaking resources were created with the proceedings book and work catalogs.
Engravist printmaking events and activities aim to bring together national and international printmaking artists under the same roof and create a synergy in the field.
