In 1982, our relation with the magic world of screen printing started with stamping rock-groups T-shirts, which was the main activity in our beginnings.
In 1986 the 6IS GRÀFIC is created in the neighbourhood of “la Sagrada Família”, and in a self-taught way, we keep on learning new types of screen printing through working with different physical supports.
In early 1990, we start contacting with some artists, while our workshop starts specialising in the artistic branch of screen printing.
In 1998, we move our headquarters to “la Font d’en Fargues (Carmel/Horta)” while we continue working with Josep Moscardó. In that moment, La Palmera Taller d’Art originates.
At the end of 1999, our editorial, APARTEDICIONS, is born. During the first years, the editorial collaborates in the distribution of our screen printing editions together with Maragall Edicions. More than 88 editions are made in a period of seven years, with artists like Josep Moscardó, Jaume Roure, Ramon Moscardó, Marcos Pallazzi and Jordi Santacana.
In 2004 the editorial presents its own editorial fund to the world through our website, to promote screen printing around the world, while offering online sales.
APARTEDICIONS assists and participates in national and international fairs, showing its fund and last editions to the main European cities; Paris, London, Basel, Madrid, among others.
Although the economic difficulties that we had over the last years, the editorial rhythm keeps on being active and important. We have managed to increased our collection with 70 more editions, while raising the number of artists whom we work with: Marta Chinchilla, Magí Puig, Isidro Ferrer, Joan Guillén, Anna Solanilla and Lluc Queralt. The artistic field or areas that we work with have also been widened, including photography, the artist’s book and the photo-book.
Between 2013 and 2017, Apart Edicions have disposed of an art space to advertise and commercialise its own editorial collection in the centre of Barcelona (Notariat, 3). This initiative has allowed us to share, advertise and promote the latest editorial projects. We have also carried out exhibitions and presentations of recent works from some our artists, and developed art projects that nowadays are available in the current APARTSHOWROOM, in the neighbourhood of “el Guinardo”, Barcelona.
