Garo Antreasian (1922-2018) was involved with lithography throughout his entire life, starting at the age of seventeen. He was first introduced to the medium through an abandoned hand press at Arsenal Technical High School in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. After a brief time in the Coast Guard, Antreasian returned to Indianapolis to finish studying painting at the Herron School of Art and Design (formerly the John Herron Art Institute). He spent some time working in New York, making and exhibiting paintings, until he was invited to be the first technical director of the new Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles, which later moved to the University of New Mexico. Antreasian’s work has been exhibited in Illinois, Indiana, Arizona, New York, New Mexico, Mexico, and in other locations domestically and internationally, and his pieces hang in several public and private collections across the country.
