Studio Grafis Minggiran

Based in Yogyakarta, Studio Grafis Minggiran is an arts community, founded on a work site or studio-centered practice, which focuses on the development of printmaking techniques. Studio Grafis Minggiran was founded in 2001 by a group of artists who were, at that time, printmaking students at the Indonesia Institute of the Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts.

During its development, Studio Grafis Minggiran has become a worksite or creative work space accessible to anyone interested in facilitating the discourse on, or practice of, printmaking in Indonesia.

Studio Grafis Minggiran conducts a diverse range of educational and printmaking appreciation programs – such as exhibitions, special projects and workshops – across a wide spectrum of locations for broad audiences including artists, college and primary school students, and the general public. Studio Grafis Minggiran is a center for information and documentation on the development of printmaking in Indonesia, always endeavoring to establish cooperation and build networks with institutions and art communities that exist in Indonesia and abroad.
