The Bo Halbirk Studio, rue du Chemin Vert, Paris 11ème was founded in 1992 by the well known Danish printmaker, Bo Halbirk.  Since then, under his direction, it has become a centre for professional, diverse and experimental printmaking and international exchange for printmakers from all over the world.  Artists from Japan, South America, Australia, the U.S.A., Eastern and Western Europe all come regularly to work in the studio and to exchange their ideas in a friendly atmosphere.

The Bo Halbirk Studio has organised numerous exhibitions in France and throughout Europe over the years and is to show in Ireland for the first time this year.
