Graham Black is a silkscreen printmaker based in St Buryan, Cornwall. His affinity with West Penwith’s rugged coastal landscape underpins much of his work. The rocks and pebbles discovered on his daily walks, surfs and bike rides around Land’s End are a major influence, as are the twisted, distorted Monterey pine trees that inform his Japanese-woodblock-inspired prints.

His technical skill and artistry, tethered to his fresh approach to and empathy with the local landscape, saw him selected as a member of the renowned Cornwall Crafts Association. He is also a senior lecturer in Illustration at Falmouth University.
