He then moved on to work at Art Estampe as chef d'atelier, and then collaborative printer for the Guerlain Foundation. For the next 15 years, he would be the director/owner of Atelier Arts Litho, and offer his knowledge and experience to numerous artists, galleries and international publishers. Here is collaborated alongside contemporaries such as Zao Wou Ki, Pierre Alechinsky, Oliver Debré, Francis Bacon, Arman, Daniel Authouart, as well as Corneille, Vladimir Velickovic, Zhang Xiao Gang, Yue Minjun, Yan Pei Ming, and Astrid de La Forest. Here Stéphane Guilbaud forged his expertise, his eye, and shaped his craft and has enabled himself to build his current studio, located in the Viaduc des Arts in the 12th arrondissement. Artists he has worked with here include Gérard Garouste, Fabrice Hyber, Damien Deroubaix, Barthélémy Toguo, Ernest Pignon Ernest, Hervé Dirosa, James Rielly, Otto Piene, and Art Spiegelman.
Stéphane Guilbaud continues his work today in the same spirit having been given the honor as a member of the Grands Ateliers de France, and in 2010 receiving the title Maitre d'Art. With this title, he is training the printers of tomorrow, transmitting his knowledge through internships and apprenticeships, so they will be equipped with the skills to carry on this special responsibility of accompanying a work, an image in the making.
La Force, Bergerac
In addition to the Paris studio, Ateliers Stéphane Guilbaud includes a studio located in the southwest of France, a village to the west of Bergerac, one hour from Bordeaux. This studio is equipped with hand presses for small stone work, and also specializes in large format work using both stone and photo processes, up to 47" x 63" (120x160cm)
Only 3 of these large Voirin presses exist in France. Dating back to 1860 when the first subway lines were built in Paris, they were used to create large scale broadside poster advertisements for the new metro line.
Rescued from being destroyed, Stéphane moved this press to La Force in 2008 and has worked with numerous artists desiring to work on the large stone. The first of whom was Pierre Alechinsky.
