We distinguish ourselves by motivating and accompanying both those who are just starting out and those who are more experienced, sharing our professional experience working together with those who visit us. With a contemporary approach aimed at aesthetic and technological experimentation we specialize ourselves in sustainable less toxic techniques.

A path to be traveled

"Without any detriment to the traditional printmaking procedures, those proposed here will make it possible to replace all or a large part of the very toxic and polluting materials of traditional printmaking with other less harmful and harmful ones such as light and water.
The toxicity of the conventional materials used in the traditional engraving procedures used for the execution of etching is well known (acids, solvents, resins, inks, etc.) and constitutes a serious threat both for those who handle them or who are exposed to them frequently as for the environment.
These new aesthetic-plastic procedures, closely related to photo-reproducibility, not only represent an innovative aspect, but also allow processes comparable to any of the traditional procedures to be generated, without compromising their aesthetic quality."

"The printmaking studio is not an isolated place separated from the world: it impacts the environment due to residues, chemical waste and the discarding of materials. How can we prevent the activity of our printmaking activity from having a negative impact on nature?

The answer is very simple: specifying printmaking projects in which we include the analysis of the technical procedure from an environmental ethics point of view."

"Green Printmaking uses oil or water-based inks, and they have the characteristic that they can be cleaned with water or non-harmful solvents such as edible oil; for this reason they are much less polluting than traditional inks. The work on the plates is done with less aggressive tools than in some modalities of traditional printmaking: gouges and acids become unnecessary."

Renew the eagerness

“The creative process through printmaking is the result of a tension between rationality and intuition and it’s manifested in the studio conceived as a lab.
Photograph, draw, engrave, reveal, cut out, cut, die cut, join, sew, assemble. Procedures that follow one after another for the creation of printed art pieces.
In the studio we work with all kinds of resources: both traditional artistic elements and other everyday materials: -packaging, plastic, found objects- are used to register their expressive possibilities: hardness, permeability, resistance, texture, transparency. The incorporation of new resources and their photographic variables (polyester photolithography, photopolymer plates, photoengraving on offset plates) bring us closer to a graphic visual poetics of great expressive potential.
Traditional techniques are complemented by those of an experimental nature, providing a spectrum of intersections between these procedures, with an emphasis on less toxic etching.”

“Less toxic printmaking techniques give us back our enthusiasm for working in the studio without losing quality or depth in the proposals.
Having discovered that traditional printmaking can be done with substances that are friendly to our health and the environment comforts us and restores our enthusiasm for doing it. The new plastic graphic procedures incorporate new techniques and materials without hierarchies or preconceptions. The options are very wide and respond both to aesthetic searches and to the need to raise awareness about reuse and recycling as ways of reducing the environmental impact of our work. Eco printmaking, green printing, non toxic print, are some of the current ways that in different parts of the world strive to investigate, collect information and share it generously.
In our studio we implement some basic precepts of these trends and we have a specific bibliography for those who wish to delve into the subject and carry out their own research.”
