WHO WE ARE
Pele Prints is a collaborative fine art printmaking studio dedicated to creating limited edition prints and original works of art. At Pele Prints, we take a non-traditional approach to each project and encourage experimentation. Here artists are free to explore their ideas in the studio, using multiple print processes as a jumping-off point. While the print medium is the primary focus, finished pieces may also include three-dimensional components, collage, handwork, and/or various other elements. The goal is to create a unique body of work that displays the curiosity, learning, and constant discovery exemplified in the collaborative process at its best.
At Pele Prints, we work with artists from all disciplines (painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, etc.)...no printing experience is necessary. Artists create a wide range of work using photo lithography, woodcut, relief, intaglio, and screen printing techniques. Since the studio is equipped with large-scale presses, many projects highlight large-format printing.
A small number of artists are invited to publish at Pele Prints each year. Print publishing is curated, by invitation only, and costs are covered by the studio. Once the work is complete, the studio and the artist split the finished pieces. Check out our gallery to see work published at Pele. To be considered for print publishing, please send us examples of your work.
Contract printing is always welcome at the studio. Just drop off your project, and we will do the rest! The cost is $40/hour. Artists interested in having a project printed at Pele Prints can contact us for an estimate.
For universities, organizations, and institutions looking for an artist visit, we offer demos, workshops, and lectures at your location. These can all be customized to meet your needs...contact us for more info.
