Bill Chambers is an artist printmaker with strong links to Swansea Print Workshop and Cardiff Print Workshop and is currently printmaking technical demonstrator for the Foundation course at the Arts Academy in Cardiff.


“I have always been fascinated by architecture and much of my work in print depicts urban spaces.


I begin by taking photos and then carefully tracing them with a vector drawing program. This allows me to select and enhance areas of the image and develop variants of the designs, infusing them with pattern and texture and subverting the spacial elements with geometric shapes.


The works on show are the result of an ACW Creative Wales Award that allowed me to explore new media in printmaking, working closely with the Contemporary Textiles Course at Cardiff Metropolitan University and basing the work on the architecture and the urban environment of Newport.”
