John Robshaw Textiles

After earning a fine arts degree at Pratt and studying traditional block printing in China, John "I-Caught-the-Asia-Bug" Robshaw journeyed to India to find natural indigo dye for his paintings. Instead, he fell in love with fabric-making, facinated with the hands-on immediacy and vitality of the local textiles.

In India, John applied a painterly aesthetic to the traditional method of block-printing by mixing up patterns and overlapping them in a more formally artistic way. There, his signature dynamic look was crafted: an updated spin on the exotic, handmade object; a vibrant mix of sophistication and romantic allure.
