Master printer Robert Blanton began his career in 1974 at Styria Studio in New York, collaborating with artists on such projects as James Rosenquist’s “F-111”, Robert Rauschenberg’s “Chow Bags” and Roy Lichtenstein’s “Still Lifes”. Five Years later Blanton opened his own studio in New York, Brand X Editions.
Brand X Editions specializes in silk screen printing, etching based mediums, and object making, collaborating with artists to create works within the genre of printmaking, as well as those that transcend it.
The studio is renowned for its experimental spirit and high quality of craftsmanship. The staff of printers, chromists and technicians have been carefully selected and trained to excel in what makes the singular aesthetic approach at Brand X Editions.
Understanding that each artist’s goal is unique, and that each project presents its own set of challenges – from physical size and process, to materials, and level of complexity – Brand X Editions’ collaborative approach seeks to resolve these creative tensions, therefore realizing the artist’s ultimate vision for each project.
Editions and multiples produced and published by Brand X Editions over the past 40 years are in private collections and museums throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, MN, the Tate Gallery, London and many more.
