Founded by David Lasry in New York City in 1994, Two Palms works with some of the world’s most celebrated contemporary artists to publish prints and sculpture multiples in its studio and showroom in SoHo. Two Palms upends codified notions of what a print could or should be, utilizing a constantly expanding roster of tools and technologies, while nurturing an expertise in traditional techniques such as intaglio and the nearly lost medium of the Woodburytype.
