Atelier le Grand Village

'Atelier le Grand Village' is a lithography studio located in the hamlet ‘le Grand Village’ in the Charente-Limousine, in the south-west of France. The founder, Francis van der Riet, was born in Zimbabwe and has lived in France since 1988. The aim of the studio is to revive the art of stone lithography by inviting artists in residence from around the world. Artists from several countries, including France, South Africa, the United States, Japan, Brazil and Bulgaria, have already come and worked in the studio. 

Atelier le Grand Village has participated in several exhibitions around the world particularly in France, South Africa, Sweden, Portugal and the United States. All works produced at the studio are registered with the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Works created at the studio are in collections with the Albertina in Vienna, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the IZIKO South African National gallery and the Victoria & Albert museum in London.

In October 2019, Atelier le Grand Village was invited to the leading art fair dedicated to African art -1.54 Contemporary African Art Fair - London, as a special project by presenting works from Diane Victor, Bambo Sibiya and Mongezi Ncaphayi.
