Studio Visit: Lazarides Print Studio in Wapping, LondonJuxtapoz // Thursday, 07 Jul 2011
Our London correspondent, Butterfly, made an exlcusive visit to Lazarides Gallery's new print studio in Wapping, London. The studio produces exclusive small run editions, hand finished screenprints, HPM (hand finished multiples) and works on paper for artists like Paul Insect, Stanley Donwood, and Conor Harrington, amongst others.
Butterfly told us this morning, "Overlooking the River Thames in London, Wapping offers large warehouse spaces to an ever growing artistic community, so it’s no surprise to see Lazarides Gallery relocate their Printmaking operation when they outgrew their makeshift basement studio in Soho.
"The Laz printing studio produces exclusive small run editions, hand finished screenprints, HPM (hand finished multiples) and works on paper for a multitude of artists like Antony Micallef, 3D, Paul Insect, Zevs, Ron English, Conor Harrington, Mode2, Jonathan Yeo, and Boogie to name a few. Some of the prints produced here will be sent to Los Angeles for upcoming shows at Lazarides' new venture PNB, Post No Bills. (Editor's note: We checked out this space in Venice Beach, California this past weekend, and situated in the old Equator Books, the space is incredible.)
"It was exciting to see the different stages of the manual printing process, and also bumping into artist Stanley Donwood who was checking and signing his latest series of prints."
