Crashing Wave

Crashing Wave I The American West Coast I 2011-2013


Artist – Kristina Hagman

As I drove from Washington State to California several times I stopped along the way and painted. When I got to LA I networked with printers all over this spread out metropolis and found several fascinating print studios to work in, from garage shops in Hollywood to the beautiful well appointed print department at Art Center Pasadena to the International Print Museum in Torrance.

I traveled just as much as I had collecting the views of Mount Rainer just to find places to make these prints of the beach.

About the Artist

Kristina Hagman|

I am a wood block print artist and painter. I grew up in Los Angeles, where I developed a fascination for the curved structures of the freeway. Back in LA after 33 years away, I am currently working on a series of woodblock prints, “The West Coast: From Canada to Mexico.”

When I lived in Seattle, I focused on depicting Mount Rainier from many different vantage points inspired by Hokusai and his “36 Views of Mount Fuji.” I created the woodblock series, “36 Views of Mount Rainier,” which were exhibited at Pacific Asia Museum in Summer 2012.

My education is non-traditional. I was mentored by many Artists in Santa Fe New Mexico, where I drew from the figure in the John Sloane Drawing group. While there, I also studied with Bay Area figurative artists ,Wayne Thiebaud, Nathan Oliveira, and Richard Diebenkorn at the Santa Fe Institute of Art. I learned printmaking from Ron Pokrasso of Graphics Workshop and Sheila Coppola of Sidereal Press.
