The art of Michael Goro

Voyage de Nuit (etching/engraving; no date).

Michael Goro’s etchings and engravings are rich with the kind of gritty urban verisimilitude I love. His site has several more examples and there’s a good interview with the artist here.

Michael Goro, a prominent intaglio printmaker, has lived and worked in Russia, Europe, Israel, and the U.S. His work has received a number of prestigious international awards including Special Prize at the 1998 International Print Triennial in Kanagawa, Japan and Excellent Prize at the 2006 14th Seoul Space International Print Biennial at the Seoul Museum of Art (Korea). He describes his art as a “continuous creative search for raw authenticity in urban environments and human forms that are constantly changing.” Utilizing the full spectrum of printmaking techniques, ranging from Renaissance engraving to digital photogravure, he shares his unique personal experiences through imaginative imagery.

Thanks to PK for the tip!

    Great work! I thought that the building in the first picture was a tweaked photo…

    Some of his pictures seem to feature photographic elements but without seeing the prints up close it’s hard to tell. Very photorealist in any case.

    This is good but is there any more urban pictures? They are quite necassary for my urban art work i’m doing at college. This picture is very good though, i think its quite clever becuase of the reflection. It makes the effect seem so much better and more creative. Thankyou. And a very welldone to you aswell, you are a fabulous artist indeed. Although, on the other hand, you seem a bit up yourself, and a bit of an ass wipe so to speak. Lmaolmao
