Greg Bada, an intaglio printmaker, received is BA in Geography from Long Beach State University, Long Beach, CA, in 1994. He received his AA in Fine Arts at Mesa College San Diego, in 2011.
“My intaglio prints are all done using centuries old techniques. I begin with a clean zinc plate whereupon I etch an image and utilize other techniques such as acid and aquatint to add line and value, which can sometimes take weeks. Ink is then applied to the etched plate and pulled though a hand cranked printing roller press onto special water soaked paper. Inspiration for my work comes from intaglio printmaking masters such as Francisco Goya, Kathe Kollwitz, James Whistler, and Otto Dix.”
