CAROL WILHIDE JUSTIN
Carol Wilhide Justin is a printmaker working mainly in relief printmaking- woodcut, linocut, Japanese Woodcut and bookbinding. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2017 with an MA in Print. In 2014 she was awarded a residency by MI-Lab to learn Mokuhanga or Japanese Woodcut in Fujikawaguchiko, Japan from Japanese senseis. Mokuhanga has become and remains her main practice. In Japanese woodcut the delicate nuance of watercolour is married to the certainties of the woodcut. The prints are hand printed using a baren on Japanese paper. Since her MA Carol has been on a residency to Finland to work with Tuula Moilenen, an internationally renowned Mokuhanga printmaker and specialist. Her work has been exhibited at Clifford Chance, Travers Smith (where she won the CSR RCA Award,) Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2017 and 2018 where she won the Intaglio Printmaker’s Prize, National Open Art Exhibition and the West Yorkshire Print Workshop Show ‘Japan’. Her work is held in print collections at Clifford Chance, RCA, CfSHE Tokyo Japan, Awagami Awa Japan and the V&A Museum in London. She teaches Japanese Woodcut, Bookbinding and Relief Printmaking at Morley College, the City Literary Institute and The Art Academy in London.
