Dante is a Pomeranian crossed with some kind of Terrier, and he gives his name to the screen printing studio he shares with Chris in New Cross, south east London.
We screen print onto paper and textiles, and would be happy to talk to you about any projects you might have.
We have worked with screen printing for nearly 30 years starting from the age of 14 when Chris worked for a commercial screen printer during the school holidays. He then went on to study Fine Art Printmaking at both undergraduate and post graduate level, before setting up creative collective Garudio Studiage for whom screen printing has been an integral part of creating products which are hand printed and sold in stores including Selfridges, the British Library, Museum of London and Urban Outfitters.
Alongside personal work and that of the Garudio Studiage, we have taken on increasing amounts of work for other artists, designers, galleries, musicians and anyone who needs screen printing including including Coralie Bickford-Smith, Ronald Dick & Brooke Benington.
Chris has also taught printmaking, graphic design and illustration at colleges including Central Saint Martins and the London College of Communication.
We produce everything in house and can go from digital artwork to screens in half an hour and this quick turn around has enabled us to also work with props, sets, and exhibitions for whom time is of the essence.
In addition to straightforward screen printing on paper and textiles, we have also experimented widely with making prints on materials including dartboards and coffins as well as making prints using dust and precious metals in the place of traditional inks.
