Echelon is a limited edition linocut print by Lisa Takahashi. Echelon is the next in a series of prints that describes the power and collective energy of a group of drafting cyclists – I see it as the cousin of my previous print ‘The Chain Gang’. The designing process was very important for this print – the image is held together by the strong verticals of the arms and legs of the cyclists, and how the colours were laid was carefully considered so that there was a feeling of wheels and pedals rotating at speed. Although the Echelon are working together there is a real sense of each individual cyclist, which was important for me to portray.
Lisa Takahashi’s limited edition linocuts are available for sale online with Wychwood art and in our art gallery in Oxfordshire. Lisa Takahashi’s most popular limited edition prints that we sell are Tour de Force, Bonne Journee and the Chain Gang. The Yellow Chain Gang is sold out but we have The Chain Gang in the blue and red colour way. Lisa Takahashi is a Bristol based printmaker. Lisa gained her BA Honours degree in Fine Art at Bath Spa University College and Middlesex University. Lisa Takahashi makes prints because she loves to make designs that simplify the world that we live in into arrangements of alluringly coloured shapes. Lisa Takahashi sights her influences as including The Grosvenor School, Stanley Spencer and a lot of other artists from the first half of the 20th Century. She is half Japanese and half English and grew up in the wonder of North London suburbia.
