Artist Proof Studio


Kim Berman and Nhlanhla Xaba founded Artist Proof Studio (APS) in 1991. Artist Proof Studio operates as a printmaking studio and training facility for both young and aspirant artists, as well as professional artists. APS focuses on intaglio and relief printmaking processes, including lithography and silk-screening and other mixed media printing techniques. The organisation trains between 80 and 100 learners annually; learners come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to become professional artists and well-rounded citizens who make a difference in their communities and society as a whole. The organisation also has a range of linked craft projects that explore the role of art in health and poverty alleviation.
