PERAN PENDIDIKAN TINGGI DALAM MENGEMBANGKAN SENI GRAFIS DI INDONESIA
Conventional Graphic Art is understood by academics through the history of its development.
The Chinese nation is thought to have started the tradition of print as the forerunner of graphic
art in its 'primitive' era, while the Romans began etching-glass techniques for portraying gladiators.
Furthermore, the Japanese in the 8th century had begun their first authentic print by tracing and
printing Buddhist faces. When the Europeans used it as a printing technique as a medium for
artistic expression, the word "printmaking" emerged, which was later adopted by the field of art
until now. Later the graphic arts were increasingly used to reproduce various human needs. In
early 1900 the Dutch introduced the technique of Graphic Printing in education at the Bandung
Technical College is now the Bandung Institute of Technology. History and development of
Indonesian Graphic Arts in history began at Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB) as the first
academic provider of formal education in the Department of Fine Arts, then now a Faculty of
Fine Arts and Design (FSRD) of ITB. Conventional Graphic Printing Techniques become one
of the main areas of interest, the Graphic Arts Studio of the Fine Arts Department, then became
the Fine Art Study Program and the Graphic Art Printing Technique until now is still the main
area of interest and subject matter in the curriculum of the FSRD ITB Fine Arts Study Program.
