The PRINTSHOP UNION is a collaborative project founded in 2011 by the artist duo Monkey & Aargh.
Monkey has a background in graffiti and used to be a member oft the CBS crew. Aargh has played a variety of movie monsters. In an attempt to escape this cliché he worked several jobs, including as a zookeeper in the Berlin Zoo.
Their collaboration started by painting canvases together but over the years their field of work got wider and now includes objects, installations, performance and video art. Their works often relate to their roles in society, pop culture phenomena, and famous characters.
The two friends have a plan. They want to become famous. In their Berlin-based studio, they work on their first big exhibition.
PRINTSHOPUNION.COM is the place where they present their current work and sell their self-made posters and shirts. They strongly believe in high quality handmade limited editions, produced in a fair and eco-friendly way. Yet, they shall be made affordable to audiences outside the art world.
