Mokulito is a print technique developed in the 1970’s by Ozaku Schissi in Japan and more recently by Polish artist Ewa Budka. The Baldessin Press & Studio invites you to explore this versatile printmaking technique with Tasmanian artist Barbie Kjar.
Mokulito utilizes and adapts the principles of lithography allowing you to print from a wooden surface rather than a stone or aluminium plate. Mokulito enables to blend pure litho marks and sharp woodcut marks on the same piece of plywood using a wide range of drawing materials directly on the surface of the wood.

Barbie Kjar is a Tasmanian artist (Masters of Fine Art at RMIT; Bachelor of Fine Arts and Education, University of Tasmania) with a special interest in Mokulito due to its ‘wonderful and spontaneous mark making potential’. In 2016 Kjar delved into Mokulito further learning directly from Ewa Budka at Art Print Residence in Arenys de Munt, Spain. Her interest was first sparked in 2004 when she was introduced to wood lithography at the Tokyo Art School during an Australia Council residency in Tokyo. Kjar is represented in state, regional and private collections and has completed numerous residencies around the world. Since 1986 she has held 36 solo exhibitions in Australia and more recently in Barcelona and Tokyo.
