Paul Coldwell, who is Professor at Chelsea College of Art & Design (UAL), is best known as a pioneer of digital printmaking, and has established an international reputation through an artistic career that has seen him frequently represent the UK at major print events such as the Ljubljana Print Biennial, the International Print Triennial at Cracow, and the Northern Print Biennial. Coldwell also has an international reputation as a print scholar and curator. He is the author of the acclaimed book Printmaking: a contemporary perspective (2010) and is a regular contributor to the journals Print Quarterly and Art in Print. A long-term collaborator of Paula Rego’s, Coldwell has also written knowledgeably about her printmaking practice. He was the curator of the major exhibition Morandi’s Legacy: Influences on British Art at the Estorick Collection, which traced connections between the art of Giorgio Morandi and British artists like Michael Craig-Martin, Patrick Caulfield and Tony Cragg.
