His Work

“Much of my work, if not all of it, in some way is about memory and autobiography; creating a present from the fragments of the past. The dreamlike qualities of my manipulated image making has much to do with my history and the accumulated scavenging of images from family sources, as well as the anonymous details of obscure pictures. This juxtaposition of milieus and images is intended to shed some light on how I view the world and my place in it. The prints and mixed media pieces have their basis in printmaking, with screen printing being the soul of the work. As a master printer in the field and working with many artists in the production of their prints for over 45 years, I continue to be inspired and fascinated with the endless possibilities of this most versatile of all the print processes.”
– Thomas Wojak

The Studio

The studio was founded in 1972 in downtown San Francisco by Thomas Wojak and a partner. Offered at that time were custom screen printing services and a line of printed gift items. In 1978, Thomas Wojak became the sole owner and moved the studio to the Mission district of San Francisco. The gift line was discontinued and the studio began to specialize in limited edition printing for artists and designers. The business relocated to the Bayview district in 1989, moving finally to its current location in historic downtown Vallejo in 2002. Work has continued to flourish in edition printing as well as projects with designers, exhibit builders and architects. Maintaining a commitment to the fine art of screen printing exclusively, the studio relishes its longevity in the Bay Area.
