Charles Spitzack (American, Pacific Northwest) was born in 1987 in Minnesota and raised in the Twin Cities. He received a BFA with a focus in Print Arts and Drawing from Cornish College of the Arts in 2010, and teaches woodblock printmaking at Pratt Fine Arts Center to youth and adults. Spitzack is known for his bold, energetic, Mokuhanga-inspired woodblock prints of the human figure, animals, landscapes, urban scenes, and more. Drawing inspiration from daily life and his work as a carpenter, his art can be viewed as a response to the human condition, often focusing on communal aspirations, equality, labor rights, the plight of the working class, and other contemporary issues. His work has been shown extensively in the Pacific Northwest and internationally.
