The studio has truly reached a new level of professional excellence in printmaking. Artist Proof Studio has an active international exchange program that attracts some of South Africa’s foremost artists to collaborate and publish print portfolios.
The artworks sold in the gallery are mostly printed / manufactured in our professional printing studio. Prior to the production of new projects costings and schedules are re-viewed in line with new policies and sales strategies. When the budget has been finalised and it has been agreed with the artist involved in how many artworks APS will retain at 100% to recoup initial production costs – editioning commences.
What is Printmaking?
An original print is a work of art on paper which has been created by the artist to be realised as a print. Prints are produced by drawing or carving an image on a matrix such as a linoleum, metal plate or positive at times. This surface is then inked up and the image is transferred to paper by the application of pressure, thus creating an impression or print.
