About Graphicstudio

Graphicstudio is a university-based atelier engaged in a unique experiment in art and education. Founded in 1968 as a non-profit art-making facility, Graphicstudio is committed to research and the application of traditional and new techniques for the production of limited edition prints and sculpture multiples.

James Rosenquist, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Vik Muniz, Kiki Smith and other leading contemporary artists have worked in collaboration with our expert artisans to create works on paper and editions of sculptures in a variety of materials. Ongoing research by Graphicstudio has produced many new processes, and treatments of traditional methods have been developed such as waxtype (encaustic screen printing) and heliorelief (a photographic woodblock process).

Graphicstudio editions have been acquired by leading museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Public Library, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and the USF Contemporary Art Museum maintain complete archives of Graphicstudio editions.
