Niels Borch Jensen has been interested in art since childhood, when one of his favourite books was a collection of Goya’s etchings. At the age of 17, a teacher introduced him to the world of graphic printing and, soon afterwards, Borch Jensen acquired a printing press, which he duly put in his bedroom. In 1979, he set up his own graphic print shop in Copenhagen and today he is considered one of the world’s master printers, having helped artists such as Julie Mehretu, Danh Vo and Tal R to find their own expression in print. “When they think of prints, people usually think of things like poster prints and reproductions of other art, but print art in itself makes for exciting and unique pieces,” says Borch Jensen.
