The Atelier Arcay was founded in 1951 by the painter Wilfredo Arcay, who in the early stages of his career revived the ancient technique of serigraphy which had developed from the Japanese craft of making stencils.
As Arcay had a great many friends and acquaintances in the art world, he was able to work with great artists of his generation such as Jean Arp, Sophie T. Arp, Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Auguste Herbin, Jesús Raphael Soto, Victor Vasarely and so on.
Since 1993, Arcay’s son, Jérôme Arcay, has carried on producing his father’s work. Jérôme Arcay has also been able to continue the relationships his father had built with more contemporary artists such as Errò, César, Jacques Monory and Peter Klasen, while at the same time forming new ones with artists of his own generation such as Robert Combas, François Boisrond, Sylvie Fanchon, and more recently Olivier Filippi and Camila Oliveira Fairclough.
This exhibition at eac. provides an opportunity to display a selection of prints from the Atelier’s collection from when it was founded to the present day.
