Polígrafa Obra Gràfica 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.
Nowadays the Muga family, 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.
Polígrafa Obra Gràfica is present annually at the most important international fairs worldwide.
