Lynwood Krenecks screenprints are recognized throughout the world for their imaginative, often humor-filled content, vivid colors, and always superb technical execution. His print series, such as ""Space Probes"", ""Earths Mysteries Solved"", ""Great Moments in Domestic Mishaps"", and ""Clownz"", show wit combined with care and passion for the screenprinting form. This personal, casual, and straightforward story follows the artists rise from a lonely childhood on a South Texas farm to recognition as one of the leading printmakers in the world today. The story begins with Krenecks youth during the lean World War II years and continues through his education in advertising at the University of Texas in Austin, his mentoring by printmaker and teacher Constance Forsyth, and his decision to abandon a successful advertising career to make his own art. After earning his MFA at the University of Texas, Kreneck joined the faculty at Texas Tech University, where he has remained through a career of nearly four decades. As a teacher, Kreneck has himself been a mentor to many printmakers. He is also the founder of Colorprint U.S.A., one of the most influential print exhibits in the world today, and he has had a primary influence on the development of water-based inks, which have made screenprinting labs safer for teachers, students, and professional artists. This book is filled with full-color reproductions of many of Krenecks screenprints, and it includes a step-by-step description of the artists new screenprinting technique, which he calls no prints. It also gives readers a glimpse of some of the outrageously inventive ideas of this colorful yet careful printmaker, who has dedicated his career to making his art, paving the way for others to make their art, and promoting printmaking as an art form. Owning this beautiful book will be a pleasure not only for the insight it gives into Krenecks body of work, but also for its fascinating, personal resume of his life and career.
