Professional Printmaking Studio
BLACK RIVER STUDIO offers creatives a professional screenprinting environment under the guidance of experienced master printmaker, Wim Legrand.
Wim is expert at assisting artists to translate their work into fine art print editions. He inserts himself into the work and process of the artist to find technical solutions in order to arrive at a result that is in synch with the artist’s body of work as a whole.
Career highlights include an 8-year stint as master printmaker and studio coordinator at the Frans Masereel Centrum AIR programme in Belgium. He has worked with printmaking studios as far afield as the University Tsukuba (Japan), the Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop (Scotland), and KOC University (Istanbul) where he was guest lecturer.
Black River Studio is the home of 50ty50typrints - a collaborative process between artist and printmaker. 50ty50ty is an online collection of limited edition screenprints. It serves to showcase the studio’s artisan approach to screen printing and the exciting physical process involved.
