We are excited to announce that our November program will be a presentation by Benji Hicks.
Benji Hicks was born in Columbia, South Carolina in 1970. He graduated from Brookland Cayce high school, class of 1988. With no formal training, he is a self-taught artist and woodblock print maker.
Working professionally as a carpenter and painter, including murals & sign painting, he has always enjoyed drawing, painting and wood carving.
Just before his 50th year, he decided to combine these skills to create woodblock prints. He is just as passionate about the tools, materials and techniques of Mokuhanga, (Japanese woodblock printing), as he is about the images he creates. He draws inspiration from Japanese woodblock printing, architecture and the natural world around him.
