Printmaking at OCAD University invites everyone to this letterpress demonstration by Amos Kennedy
Amos Kennedy is a letterpress printer using a distinctive voice to create posters, artists' books and publications. Through his strong graphics and bold typography, Kennedy pushes issues of race, freedom, and equality, often incorporating proverbs and tales of the Kuba and Yoruba people of Africa, as well as the work of African-American poets such as Paul Laurence Dunbar. Amos quit his corporate job at the age of forty to become, as he calls himself, "a humble negro printer". He received his MFA from the University of Wisconsin, has taught workshops in over seven countries and is currently spearheading the Detroit Printing Plant.
