We work together with artists to create revolutionary work


Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix onto another surface, most often paper or fabric. Traditional printmaking techniques include woodcut, etching, engraving, and lithography, while modern artists have expanded available techniques to include screen printing.

Why buy prints?

Print is a great way to learn about artistic process, discover new artists, and experiment with your tastes and confidence. It can also be a shrewd investment. Because there is often more than one ‘impression’ of any one printed image, it is inevitable that it is often easier to find - and afford - an original print than an oil or watercolor by a certain artist. The price will depend on the quality and the date of the printing. The nature of editioning can mean you are able to introduce original works by some of the worlds top artists at a fraction of the cost.
