The Urban Landscape

Spending time growing up in rural upstate New York and also New York City was a contrast in experiences. I found that city life was more vibrant and interesting. As I started to find my artistic voice, these urban elements informed much of my visual aesthetics.

Having learned this particular print technique during my first semester in college, I have come back to expand upon it. The texture, grit, and roughness this printing method imparts to the image lends itself perfectly to the subject matter. Now that I live in LA, you can see the difference between the light in New York and California in the prints. I want to keep exploring different cities and documenting different aspects of urban living.

    My name is Calvin and I currently live in LA. From public transit, buildings, and infrastructure, I am fascinated by all aspects of the urban environment. The history, grit, and utilitarian beauty of a city appeals to my artistic sensibilities.

Hi! Welcome to Skech Arts Print Shop! My name is Calvin Louie and these are my art prints from original monoprints I create. I take original photos and transfer them onto watercolor paper with a monoprint technique. I then go back in with color pencil to draw back in parts of the image or enhance details that get lost in the process.

I appreciate being able to share my artwork for you to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by my shop!
