Walla Walla, US

Benjamin Selby lives and works in the United States. In recent years, Benjamin’s graphic work has focused on mastering Japanese woodcuts.

To this end, he took classes with Richard Steiner at the Kyoto International Mokuhanga School in 2018 and a residency with Terry McKenna at the Karuizawa Mokuhanga School in 2023.

Benjamin uses his experiences fishing for catfish, caymans and carp in a treacherous stretch of the Trinity River in Texas as a starting point for his works. In addition to traditional cutting techniques, Benjamin also uses new technology such as laser cutting.
