Scott Ludwig is a visual artist and educator with decades of university-level experience teaching across of diverse spectrum of media in the visual arts. With an MFA in Printmaking from Ohio University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, print media forms the core of his creative practice and research.
Ludwig’s knowledge and technical interests are wide-ranging. As a contemporary artist and specialist in safer, low-impact, print media, he embraces a twenty-first century interpretation of both process and form. Extending beyond works on paper and into hybrid investigations, he explores the convergence of digital media, photography, papermaking, drawing, sculpture, installation, books, letterpress, and various other, alternative mediums.
Over the years, Ludwig has been awarded numerous grants, fellowships, and artist residencies, including a 1999 Fulbright-Hays Scholarship in Turkey. During the past decade, several awards funded creative research and travel to China, Japan, the Netherlands, Korea, Mexico, Cuba, Costa Rica, Scotland, Turkey, Canada, New Mexico, California, Death Valley National Park, and the Barrier Islands of Southern Louisiana.
Ludwig actively exhibits his work nationally and internationally, with solo and group exhibitions in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Zhengzhou City, Amsterdam, Seoul, Havana, and London. His work has been featured in global surveys of printmaking, including the 2022 Shuidu River International Art Festival throughout Hunan Province in China, the 9th Print Bienal at the Douro Museum in Portugal, the 2016 NeoPrint Prize in Bolton, UK, the 1st Xuyuan International Print Biennial at the Print Research Center in Beijing, and the Xiaoxiang Exhibition of International Printmaking at the Meilun Art Museum in Changsha, China.
He has curated and co-curated printmaking exhibitions including the recent 2022 International Youth Printmakers Invitational in Changsha, China, and the 2018 international, traveling exhibition, Sustained Ingrain: Contemporary Woodcuts from East to West, that premiered at the 2018 SGCI Annual Conference, Las Vegas.
