60 Years of Graphic Studio Dublin
Graphic Studio Dublin is Ireland’s oldest printmaking studio, established in 1960. With an artist led ethos, Graphic Studio Dublin has protected the traditional skills of etching, stone lithography, wood and linocutting, and now embraces contemporary techniques of photo-intaglio and screenprinting.
Hundreds of artists have passed through the doors of the Studio, from the first basement premises in Lower Mount Street, through its long and productive sojourn in Green Street East in Dublin’s Docklands, to its present home in a spacious four storey former brewery on the North Circular Road. Many of its artists have gone on to spread the skills of printmaking by founding new studios, in a manner that would have pleased the five founding members.
