Walter D'Souza

Known primarily for his printmaking and wood cut work, Walter D'Souza is dedicated to creating an ever-evolving personal vocabulary through art. He has worked closely with architects to explore new definitions in design, such as the possibility of converting the large woodblocks used in printmaking as a form of relief sculpture. He has famously executed several mural-like installations within architectural art. Besides printmaking, his work also includes glass paintings, watercolors and sculpture. Together Walter's art explores a figurative language that is characteristically loaded with symbolic and allegoric meaning.

He studied painting and printmaking at the Faculty of Fine Arts, M. S. University (1983). Walter is also a teacher. He has taught the Basic Design program at the School of Architecture, Ahmedabad (1987-2006), Drawing and Sketching at National Institute of Fashion Technology, Gandhinagar (1998-2001) and Drawing at National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad (1998). He has also conducted several printmaking and drawing workshops at institutions across the country. His works, especially prints, have been a part of numerous shows nationally and internationally, including at the International Print Triennale in Finland (1993).
