Griffioen Grafiek is specialized, as a publisher and dealer, in "Storytelling graphical art" like prints by comic artists, political prints, film posters, covers of sheet music and special vintage magazines.
As a publisher Griffioen Grafiek is specialized in the art of Joost Swarte.
You can also find us on the following comic fairs:
- the Haarlemse Stripdagen (every two year at the beginning of June in Haarlem)
- the Stripgidsdagen of Belgium (every two years in Turnhout)
- the KunstStripBeurs (Comic Art Fair, every year in March as part of the Holland Animation Film Festival). On this fair comic and animation film artists present and sell their own products like books, original art, posters, t-shirts and other related items.. And there our Comic Art Award is presented (see here below).
During 6 years we were represented at a stand in Angoulême at the Festival de la BD, the biggest international comic fair which is held every year in January. The last few years we don't have a stand anymore but we still visit the Angoulême festival to maintain our international contacts.
