David Krut Print Workshop, based at Arts on Main, produces fine art editions with William Kentridge, Diane Victor, Deborah Bell and a number of other South African and international artists. David Krut’s art activities started in London in the early 1980’s when he published an edition by British artist Joe Tilson. He has since curated exhibitions of contemporary works on paper in various international locations. In 1992 he became active in South Africa, publishing the editions of William Kentridge.
In 2002 he established David Krut Print Workshop, a monotype studio, in Johannesburg. In New York, print collaborations are undertaken with Director and Master Printer Phil Sanders of Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. David Krut Publishing was established in 1997 when Krut produced the first major publication on William Kentridge. Since then he has published many art books, including a series of 15 TAXI Art Books, the first series of monographs on contemporary South African artists.
