What is a silkscreen print?
Good ©Wikipedia article here. The limited-edition prints are hand-pulled at the studio in Berlin, usually using water-based inks. As silkscreen is a manual process, the colours and registration might possibly vary slightly from print to print. All prints are checked before being numbered, signed and shipped.
What is a unique artwork?
As the term suggests, a unique artwork is a one-off original piece. Patrick usually uses the silkscreen process to create these works in combination with different (paper/cardboard/fabric) supports, sometimes with collage and manual intervention. All unique artworks are signed and catalogued.
How true are the colours of the onscreen previews?
The colours of the original artworks might differ slightly different from those onscreen. The quality of silkscreen is impossible to capture digitally.
How does copyright of an image work?
When you purchase an artwork, you become the owner of the physical piece. The copyright remains with the artist (Patrick Thomas). You may not rework or reproduce the image without written consent of Patrick Thomas Studio.
Is it possible to visit Patrick Thomas Studio Berlin?
We are not able to receive visitors at the studio without a prior appointment.
Can I apply for an internship at Patrick Thomas Studio Berlin?
No, sadly not. If we are looking for anyone to join out team we will post information here.
I am a student, may I send you questions or an interview for my college project via email?
We regret that, due to the volume of requests we receive, currently we are unable to answer questions/interviews/etc. from students. Patrick dedicates a considerable amount of time to teaching, giving talks, hosting workshops and receiving student groups at the studio and is unfortunately unable to dedicate more time to this type of work. Thank you for your understanding.
