Talking Art Sessions
Next up in our Talking Art series is an insight into life as Michael Taylor.
Michael Taylor is the founder of the Paupers Press, the hugely respected fine art print and publishing studio based in Hoxton, London. Since 1986 it has worked with many leading and emerging contemporary artists, both by commission as well as publishing projects under its own name. Paupers has worked for some of the leading UK galleries such as White Cube, Cristea Roberts and Marlborough, realising finely crafted and ambitious print projects with artists such as Tracey Emin, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry and Chris Ofili. The Mechanical Hand: Artists Projects at Paupers Press was published in 2012 alongside a major touring exhibition of 200 works to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Michael is a master printmaker, and having taught for many years at Central St. Martins, Norwich and Camberwell Schools of Art, he continues his own practice as well as working as co-founder/director of Standpoint, an artist run gallery, studio and education programme.
For Talking Art, Michael will give a unique insight into the work of Paupers Press and some of the exciting projects it has achieved with established contemporary artists.
We are excited to hear and see more from Michael and we’d love for you to join us! Discover what inspires Michael on and off the printing press, followed by questions from the audience (that could be you!).

It’s an exciting opportunity to get up close and personal (from a distance, of course!) and better understand printmaking and printmakers.
