Prism Print International is an internationally based organisation founded in 2012 to promote artistic exchange, collaboration and international understanding through fine art printmaking. Prism draws its roots from the profound international experience of two alumni of Camberwell School of Arts & Design. Founders John Akatsu Read and Nigel Oxley curated the first Prism exhibition of UK and Japanese represented by Yanagisawa Gallery, Tokyo.

Thirteen years later this voluntary organisation has 46 selected artists from 18 countries and a catalogue of international and national exhibitions. The exhibitions have only one continuous theme 'Printmaking' and allow each artist to be seen with prints of the highest standard where process and technique can be appreciated as well as their singular vision, influenced or not by their nationality.

Curated for Down Arts Centre by Prism Print International member Karen Daye-Hutchinson ARUA ARE has selected the works for this important exhibition of 'naked prints'. Unframed original prints for the full appreciation of the real quality of mark and colour, of paper texture and even aroma.
