About Us

You won’t find us in dark alleyways mugging old ladies (unless they stole our paints)… 

Instead, we hijack the cream of Indonesia’s contemporary artists to join the best equipped printmaking facility in Indonesia.

Black Hand Gang is a creative club and our entry into a worldwide community of printmakers.

Opened in June 2020.

Our aim is to build creative communities and provide a platform to showcase Indonesian creativity to the rest of the world.

As a Publishing business, we attract both established and emerging Indonesian contemporary artists, along with guest Internationals, to collaborate in production of high quality limited edition prints which are then available to purchase through our online gallery.

For art collectors, it’s access to a treasure trove of the hottest contemporary art scenes from Indonesia.

Our unique studio space is an iconic architectural collage; combining the distinctive shaped roof of a wooden teak ‘Jogglo’ perched high up on top of six reclaimed shipping containers.  Our ‘Temple of Print’ is on the Southside of Ubud village, Bali’s cultural center, amidst the jungles and volcanoes of the island.

The studio’s collage of old and new, handcraft and industrial, it’s a nice metaphor of our work.

Our production is a blend of artistry and technical skill,  a world away from “industrial photocopying” of modern print.  Each of our edition prints are hand pulled by Devy, our studio head, who is the printmaking equivalent of Mr. Miyagi.  Enough said.

All editions are signed, numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authentication by BHG.

For those that want to get their own hands dirty, our programme of workshops and courses has everyone covered (in paint).

We invite art collectors, artists, and craftspeople to join our gang.
