As a printmaker Guido Pigni has experimented with etching for more than 25 years and has produced more than 100 plates to date.
Besides printing and editioning his own plates, over the years he has collaborated with the most notable master printers in Italy, mainly with Roberto Gatti of Laboratorio d’Arte Grafica in Modena and, recently, with Monia Pavone (Giorgio Upiglio’s main printer for many years) of Gate 44 in Milan.
In 2010 Guido Pigni founded PigPrints, an online gallery and printmaking studio based in Milan, with the aim to create a sense of community by working closely with visual artists of all kinds to produce high quality, limited edition etchings. Since its inception PigPrints’ goal has been to offer original art from both emerging and established artists at an affordable price.
During these years PigPrints has promoted and printed etching editions for many artists including Franco Matticchio, Oreste Zevola, Andrea Chiesi, Denis Riva and many more.
