Kurt Brian Webb received his most meaningful education in the public schools of Elgin, Illinois in the sixties & seventies and as a construction laborer in the eighties. Less influential, and more typical spheres of education led to bachelors, and master's degrees in ceramics, education and storytelling.
Webb sites his artistic inspiration and driving force not from past formal university training, but from a never-ending insatiable curiosity for the world in which he lives. Books of woodcuts, fighting insects, magic, side-shows, Pan-Asian silent films, foreign language slang, and world news continue to inspire Webb's current clay and printmaking thematic pursuits. He acknowledges traditional influences and builds upon them while pursuing individuality in a contemporary context. As with daring early twentieth century European political graphic artwork, Webb feels that anything goes!
