Erik Desmazières
French, b. 1948

The work of modern master printer Erik Desmazières looks as though it might have been created centuries ago, with its carefully rendered lines reminiscent of Albrecht Dürer, Jacques Callot and Francesco Piranesi—albeit with a touch of science fiction. An accomplished draftsman, Desmazières creates work filled with uncanny attention to detail and executed with a hand for atmospheric light and shadow. His work ranges from the hyperrealistic (his views of Paris) to the fantastic (the illustrations he created for Jorge Luis Borges’ Library of Babel) and the surreal (images of giant crabs and undulating cities). Combining this vivid sense of imagination with the artist’s steady and sure hand, Desmarzières has been described as “arguably the finest French printmaker of his generation.”
