Last Friday, students and staff were treated to a presentation by visiting artist Guy Whitby – Printmaker WBK Workbyknight.
Born and raised in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne, the local landscape was a major influence for Guy. As the ever-evolving technological world became more prevalent, as well an enduring love affair with a Walkman Stereo Cassette Player, Guy’s work saw a union of nature and technology begin. Using digital software and items such as keyboards, crochet squares and pixels, Guy, working under the moniker ‘workbyknight’ or ‘WBK’ creates portraits that are a representation of iconic personalities that are admired around the world.
We were very fortunate to have Guy share his inspiration, working processes and concepts with us. Thank you so much Guy for coming to Tintern Grammar!
