Polígrafa Obra Gráfica

Polígrafa Obra Gráfica was launched in 1964 by Manuel de Muga and has published editions featuring over 300 leading artists since then. In the 1970s Joan de Muga, son of the founder, opened Polígrafa’s own workshop with facilities for etching, lithography, woodcuts, and other traditional print techniques.

Current partners Joan de Muga, José Aloy, and Álvaro Puigdengolas continue the business, inviting artists to the workshop in Barcelona to develop new projects with other renowned contemporary artists. They normally come for a period of time to Barcelona to work on the plates. While the plates are finished, the professionals in the workshop start doing proofs till the result is accepted by the artist giving the so called “Bon à Tirer” or “BAT“. Then the workshop can start to print the edition in the size already agreed with the artist. Afterwards it is signed and numbered.

The selection of artists is governed by the criteria of rigor and ambition. In its early years, Polígrafa published editions by artists who are today recognized as among the foremost of their time, such as Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Robert Motherwell, Max Ernst, Christo, Pierre Alechinsky, Wifredo Lam, Antoni Tapies, Karel Appel, John Cage, George Segal, Larry Rivers, Kenneth Noland, Ed Ruscha, Alex Katz, etc. In the last few years it has published editions by contemporary artists from all around the world, with a strong relationship with latinamerica.
