About the Studio

C.A.P studio - Chiang Mai Art on Paper - is a fine art printmaking studio producing limited edition, hand-made prints in collaboration with Thai and international artists.

Specialists in a variety of traditional etching and wood block printing techniques, the studio does not make reproductions but instead prints original, custom works drawn by the artist directly on the block or plate.

For anyone interested in contemporary prints and observing the operations of a printmaking studio, the doors of C.A.P studio are always open.

History

Founded in 2003 by artist and printmaker, Kitikong Tilokwattanotai, the studio grew from humble beginnings in a small studio apartment. By 2006 the operations of the studio had expanded and outgrown its original location where the living space was dominated by the etching press. That year the studio moved to its current location and spiritual home in the trendy and cosmopolitan Chiang Mai suburb of Nimmanhemin. Since then the reputation of C.A.P studio has steadily grown and it has quickly become an important presence in the ever-expanding arts scene and community of Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Artists selected to work at C.A.P studio work with us in a collaborative way. The team guides the artist in printmaking techniques and performs the technical work leaving the artist free to develop their ideas. Most artists that are chosen to work at the studio are not printmakers and we use our knowledge to bring their work and printmaking generally to a wider audience.

 

In the spirit of working together, artists do not pay to work at C.A.P studio. We print editions of 30 prints and the studio shares the edition equally with the artist. We believe that our model allows us to have a mutually beneficial relationship with our artists and make their work available to many art lovers and collectors.

Etching

We are experienced in many forms of the etching medium including hard-ground, aquatint, drypoint, multi-plate colour etching and techniques producing painting-like effects. Etchings produced at the studio reflect the diversity of artists that we work with but are often known to achieve complexity of detail, complex layering, vibrant colours or elegance in simple but striking compositions.

Relief printing

C.A.P studio works with oil-based relief printing using a press or printing by hand. We are experienced in multi-block reduction cut and large-scale hand printed works. Our relationships with local and international paper makers have also allowed us to explore printing on unique hand-made papers.

innovation

Printmaking is more than just keeping traditional techniques alive: it is a constantly evolving medium and C.A.P studio is constantly pushing the boundaries. We experiment with new materials and methods to achieve the most unique prints that excite print collectors as well as elevate the work of artists to new levels.
