Polígrafa Obra Gràfica

Barcelona - Spain

Presentation

Polígrafa Obra Gráfica was launched in 1964 by Manuel de Muga and has published editions featuring over 300 leading artists since then.
In the 1970s Joan de Muga, son of the founder, opened Polígrafa’s own workshop with facilities for etching, lithography, woodcuts, and other traditional print techniques.
Current partners Joan de Muga, José Aloy, and Álvaro Puigdengolas continue the business, inviting artists to the workshop in Barcelona to develop new projects with other renowned contemporary artists. They normally come for a period of time to Barcelona to work on the plates. While the plates are finished, the professionals in the workshop start doing proofs till the result is accepted by the artist giving the so called “Bon à Tirer” or “BAT“. Then the workshop can start to print the edition in the size already agreed with the artist. Afterwards it is signed and numbered.
Poligrafa is to be found at the principal art fairs around the world, including Art Basel, where it has had a presence since Art Basel 2, Art Basel Miami Beach since its beginning in 2002 and ARCO in Madrid also since the very first fair as Art Basel Hong Kong, we also belong to IFPDA (International Fine Print Dealers Associations) and we are showing every year our prints at the fair that they organize in New York.
The selection of artists is governed by the criteria of rigor and ambition. In its early years, Polígrafa published editions by artists who are today recognized as among the foremost of their time, such as Joan Miró, Hans Hartung, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Eduardo Chillida, Robert Motherwell, Max Ernst, Helen Frankenthaler, Roberto Matta, Christo, Pierre Alechinsky, Wifredo Lam, Antoni Tapies, Karel Appel, Helena Vieira da Silva, Zao Wou Ki, John Cage, George Segal, Larry Rivers, Kenneth Noland, Ed Ruscha, Alex Katz, Rufino Tamayo, Francisco Toledo.
