Paper Pusher is the experimental Risograph
print and design studio of Jp King.

 
More than just a publishing house, it is a publication research lab, living classroom, and collaborative platform where curiosity and relationships serve as inspiration in the pursuits of artistic and cultural production.

With an emphasis on Obsolescence, Art, Archive, Gender, Economics and Poetics, and an eye towards collage, and illustrative graphics, Paper Pusher seeks to push the limits of format and our material relationships with paper-based objects.

The studio is best-known for its ground-breaking Isometric Calendar, which has sold out every year of production and maintains a large fan base around the world.

Jp King is an interdisciplinary artist,
writer and publisher.

 

His collaborative and independent practice examines garbage, material culture, contemporary mythology, masculinity and primitive futures. Often utilizing collage, his obsessions with print and paper manifest in multiple forms, and his writing and images have been both exhibited and published internationally.

His relational and socially-engaged projects include operating an occasional mobile writer’s residency called the Nomadesk, and the transformation of Whippersnapper Gallery into a pop-up newspaper office. In the project Free City Paper (2011), he worked with over 50 contributors during one month of conversation, reading groups, and editorial guidance to publish a newspaper that explored garbage, labour, time, and art.

He is Creative Director of the art subscription Papirmass, and lives in Toronto with his wife and collaborator, Kirsten McCrea.
