The Clinker Press is proud to present the TGP – El Taller de Gráfica Popular Print Collection.
The collection includes 20 prints of this atelier in Mexico that was influential in so many areas. The subject of the prints vary from the mystical to the political. An introduction is included and illustrated with examples.
The booklet included in the collection includes an introduction by Andre Chaves and Dermot Begley.
The Taller de Gráfica Popular (Spanish: “People’s Graphic Workshop”) was a artist’s print collective founded in Mexico in 1937 by artists Leopoldo Méndez, Pablo O’Higgins, and Luis Arenal. The collective was primarily concerned with using art to advance revolutionary social causes. The print shop became a base of political activity and abundant artistic output, and attracted many foreign artists as collaborators.
An extremely limited edition of only 50, TGP – El Taller de Gráfica Popular Print Collection is a must for those interested in the printmaking legacy of Mexico.
