Tiitus Petäjäniemi was invited to work for one month (July, 2019) at Vargas Print Studio. Guest artists are invited with the purpose to support their artistic creation and work flow. Guest artists have to bring their own paper and inks or special materials, but they are not subject to any fee. Artists can, instead, contribute for Vargas Print Studio, for example, like Tiitus did, by buying brand new felts for the intaglio press! Thank you Tiitus!
Short-term artistic residencies (1 month) are possible at Vargas Print Studio by open call soon to be published at Transartists or ResArtis websites, in which a selection process and interview is required.
There is also a possibility of renting the premises as an artist-in-residence under agreed fee.
Artists-in-residence are highly encouraged to search for funding to support their stay in Helsinki (accommodation, living costs and workshop fees).
If you wish to work at Vargas Print Studio as an artist-in-residence, please send a free application containing the following info:
Date of birth (dd-mm-yyyy)
Techniques to be used
6 - 10 images (300 dpi)
This information should be sent by post only to:
Vargas Print Studio
Mäkelänkatu 23 A 5
These applications will not be returned. Vargas Print Studio will enter in contact with you if your application has been selected and/or if it is under funding application process.
If Vargas Print Studio succeeds with supportive funding for this purpose, the artist-in-residence will be notified immediately. Looking forward to hear from you!
