TWO Slovak artists, Marián Komáček and Igor Piačka, recently participated in a six-day international workshop at the Meulensteen Art Centrum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the daily SME reported.

Over 20 other, mainly Dutch, architects, sculptors, painters, and designers working with graphic media took part in the course led by Pieter Alewijns. Due to the plurality of ideas, graphic works were not only presented in traditional form, but also as three-dimensional artistic installations.

The two Slovaks worked at the Daglicht graphic atelier, which specialises in printing large-scale graphic works on a press measuring 120 by 250 centimetres. Komáček created a series of six colourful lithographic works and Piačka worked on eight multimedia photogravure prints.

The results of the workshop will be displayed in May at the Meulensteen Art Centrum, which is part of the Technical University complex and named after Dutch visual art collector Gerard Meulensteen.
