under pressure

There's something going on in Winnipeg.
The Weakerthans.
Marcel Dzama.
And now this: a Steamroller Print Festival.

Yes. Printmaking meets heavy machinery.

For the past two years Martha Street Studio has hosted ‘Under Pressure’, Winnipeg’s only Steamroller Print Festival. High school students, community groups, and artists from across Winnipeg create large linoleum carvings leading up to the festival. On the day of the festival the carvings are inked and printed with the aid of a real steamroller.

Simply brilliant.

You can see a few photos of the hot and heavy art action over on Perfectbound's flickr as well as a set from Art from the Heart.
