Kurt Brian Webb
Glenview, Illinois

Kurt Brian Webb sites the most meaningful education in his life as not being from formal university training, but from having an insatiable curiosity for the world in which he lives. Wordless novels told in woodcuts, Filipino spider fighting, Chinese silent political films, foreign language slang, and topical world politics are some of Webb’s current clay and printmaking thematic interests. He acknowledges traditional influences and builds upon them while pursuing individuality in a contemporary context.  Webb’s work can be both whimsical and serious, often portrayed visually on the same piece! As with daring nineteen thirties European political graphic art against war, for peace, international understanding, and social justice, Webb feels that anything goes!
