Geoff Melville comes from a graffiti art and photography background, starting in 1994, and began developing a fine art practice in the 2000's. He studied Silk Screening under Thomas Wojak at CCA Oakland in 2006 and was awarded the Hamaguchi Printmaking Award that same year. In 2013, Melville began working at Modern Multiples Studio under the mentorship of the late Richard Duardo, where he produced works for Dale Chihuly, Dface, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Yoko Ono, and countless other contemporary artists.
Melville currently works for RiskRock Studios and Buckshot Gallery as the main printer producing Giclee, Silk Screen and original works for renowned artists such as Risk, Seen, 7th Letter, as well as his own work. In terms of his own practice, Melville defiantly challenges the repetitive nature of printing by making unique, multimedia works which continue to be exhibited throughout the U.S and abroad.
