Since 1976, when we began printing as Shark’s Lithography Ltd, through the last 40 years of publishing prints as Shark’s Ink, we have collaborated with a distinguished group of more than 160 artists from the United States and Europe. This eclectic body of work often challenges the assumptions and limitations of printmaking.

Processes used in the studio have included lithography; monotype- using watercolor, oil pastels and other materials; metal leaf, chine collé, embossing and collage, as well as innumerable innovations for cutting and printing woodblocks and other relief prints; and the engineering and construction of three-dimensional lithographs.

Bud Shark has devised unique methods and materials for realizing the challenging projects artists propose.

Prints published by Shark’s Ink. are included in numerous private and public collections including MoMA, NY; The Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Yale University Art Gallery, CT; The New York Public Library, NY; The Library of Congress, DC; The Art Institute of Chicago, IL; The Hirshhorn Museum, Smithsonian Institution, DC, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and many others.
