Dane Mitchell- "Perfume Plume" monotypes


born: 1976 in Auckland, New Zealand


lives and works in Auckland and Berlin


Dane Mitchell experimented with incorporating perfume into his prints.
The scent is custom-blended and was inspired by the idea of a clean, empty room. Each print is unique and carries the scent which lasts for
a number of weeks. Click here to purchase >>

El Bocho at Street Lab


Street Lab meets Berlin was organised and curated by montage, who put together so many great workshops, performances and shows for the weekend event. We were thrilled that we had the chance to showcase work by international street artists, and to see how differently they work on pieces meant for inside spaces. Berlin artist El Bocho did a two-day residency with the printers in the workshop; we all had a great time and the results of his first forays into lithography speak for themselves.

Grand Opening Event


Over 120 people attended on Saturday, 29th of May, and we were delighted to have met so many artists, gallerists and fellow printers. On show were prints which we have printed in collaboration with international artists over the past ten years. The
evening was rounded off with a stone litho demonstration and screening of two short films about collaborative printmaking.


Artist and publicist Thomas Eller delivered a speech about the importance of collaboration and it's long tradition in Berlin, and Chicago artist Nicholas Kashian spoke of the prevalence of printmaking in our lives, from fingerprints to footprints and beyond.


We would like to thank everyone for coming and for helping to make our opening such a huge success!

The new workshop in Berlin


We are delighted to announce that after many years of amazing experiences in printshops around the world, we are starting up our own: Keystone Editions.


The space is 170m2, located on the Paul-Lincke-Ufer in Berlin's Kreuzberg district in an old-style industrial loft building. We renovated from the ground up, fixed the floor, built walls and made the space feel like home.


Once the construction was over, we hit the ground running and fresh off the press are new editions by
artists Reinhold Budde from Bremen, Kuros Nekouian from Munich and most recently by Berlin artist Katrin Günther.
