COLPA is a San Francisco-based publishing company, a design firm and a print shop, and the collaborative art practice of David Kasprzak and Luca Antonucci. Founded in 2010 by Luca and Carissa Potter, Colpa started as a way to sell their own print work. They turned to Risograph printing initially because of its affordability and practicality.
Now, the studio invites artists to work with them on an original project, whether that takes the shape of a publication, an object or an exhibition. Colpa has exhibited with SFMOMA at the FOG Design + Art Fair, the NY Art Book Fair at PS1 MoMa, the LA Art Book Fair at the Geffen Contemporary MOCA, the Kadist Foundation and the Headlands Center for the Arts. Their upcoming publications are a collaboration with Mads Lynnerup that will, in part, burst in to flames upon reading, as well as a new book of original artwork by Matt Borruso.
