Artist Proof Studio (APS) is proud to be one of the leading printmaking studios that also provide a professional printmaking training programme to talented students from South Africa as well as other African countries. Our education programme trains students in a full range of printmaking skills, drawing, visual literacy, and business practice. We do this through a full time programme, part time course and professional intern senior project.
Students who graduate from our programme are featured in various exhibitions and art fairs. Artist Proof Studio uses the Turbine Art Fair (TAF) to showcase new emerging talent of printmakers, many of whom become established artists both locally and internationally. Through these platforms and other special events, we aim to develop audiences and inform first-time buyers about the value of investing in emerging printmakers.
Many of our partners support this intention and invest directly in the future of young emerging artists in South Africa.
For TAF16 we have featured top emerging printmakers from APS which also includes students from our class of 2015. Featured emerging artists include: Kelebogile Masilo, Dzunisani Maluleke, Sifiso Temba, Alex Vosloo, Donald Makola, Jan Tshikhuthula, Sizwe Khoza and Mario Soares.
