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 became a creative work space accessible to anyone interested in facilitating the discourse on, or practice of, printmaking in Indonesia.
