Maria Razo's artwork at UNT's Marquis Hall

UNT Printmaking alumna and artist Maria Razo recently donated a painting to UNT International in hopes of inspiring the UNT community to celebrate the beauty of Mexican culture.

Maria Razo attended UNT as an international student and studied Printmaking at the UNT College of Visual Arts + Design.

Razo incorporates a mixture of "nature imagery and indigenous Mexican culture" to create vibrant prints that beautifully represent her heritage.

Classic Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera inspire Razo's artmaking, but she also admires the work of contemporary street artists like Neuzz.

A global citizen herself, Razo has lived in various places in Latin America and the United States such as Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico City, and Florida. She hopes her art will inspire Denton to recognize the beauty of Mexican culture and be proud of it. 

You can view Razo's piece "La Tierra Que Nos Vio Nacer" in Marquis Hall.

Create unique, one-of-a-kind monoprints by combining traditional and cutting-edge approaches in this one-week workshop at Anderson Ranch in Colorado. Workshop participants will use the Anderson Ranch Fabrication Lab and the Patton Print Shop to examine how laser-cut stencils, blocks and overlays can expand the possibilities of a painterly, playful and multilayered approach to making hand-pulled prints.

New Approaches to Monoprinting is taught by Lari Gibbons, an artist who explores new and traditional approaches to printmaking through collaborative, interdisciplinary projects. She is Professor at the University of North Texas and also directs P.R.I.N.T, a nonprofit fine art press. She received an M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

For more information, see https://www.andersonranch.org .

UNT Printmaking students can now get course credit for approved workshops through ASTU 4302 / 5302: Printmaking Remote Research, which formalizes the off-campus experience into a series of projects that focus on demonstrating new technical skills, presenting awareness of contemporary practices, documentation of professional development, and participating in professional networking opportunities.
