Tian Gan

What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?

Hej! I'm Tian Gan. I work as a printmaker and graphic designer. I primarily use relief printing to create. Simply put, after I make an initial pencil sketch, I carve the design into the block, ink it with a roller, then print it onto the paper. All my illustrations are printed by hand.

What are you working with right now?

I am working on a series of linocuts about Swedish nature while taking commissions for illustration and graphic design work. I would love to give you an estimate! Send me an email and tell me a little about your project.
