Kavouklēs was interviewed by the art critic Joan Altabe regarding his early adoption of digital printing. And despite the article’s misleading headline, his pigment print images are not “computer-generated” by some automated process. Click here to read the interview.
Kavouklēs’ work is featured in the book by art historian Darrell D. Davisson, Ph.D., Art After the Bomb: Iconographies of Trauma in Late Modern Art (2008).
