Megalo is part of an international network of print studios, which recognises and champions the relevance of printmaking as a democratic and accessible art form, as demonstrated by the diversity and high quality of its artistic programs. Megalo’s exhibitions are of the highest quality and attract strong attendance and critical praise. The Megalo Print Emporium – an onsite and online shop - launched in 2017. The first Megalo International Print Prize exhibition launches this year.
