Drive by Press was created in 2005 when two artists and printmakers, Greg Nanney and Joseph Velasquez, made it their mission to share their enthusiasm for printmedia with audiences everywhere. Before they could start, the two artists sold everything but their souls in order to buy their printing press. They loaded the 600 pound 14th century style intaglio press in the back of their vehicle and took off across the country and have been on the road ever since. The two, dubbed kings of DIY printmedia, have now traveled over 100,000 miles spreading ink and their style of guerilla art making at events across America.
