Ludo Gallery & Japanese Woodblock Art Demonstrations

Printing under pressure - but it was wonderful to show people the nitty gritty of Japanese woodblock last night at the Affordable Art Fair Singapore Spring 2015. A bit of carving, a splash of paint and dab of glue (with some Aussie humour thrown in!) - and we had the printing process underway.  I used a new block from my upcoming Trade Tile series and showed how a three-plate four-colour print is created. It was great to have some familiar faces of my students in the crowd too. 

A big thanks to those who've supported me in various ways in this art journey - I've got a bigger spring in my step over the last year (even with two little monkeys on my back now!). Looking forward to showing you more!

  Hey - something's going on! Another makan (food) stall? No - that's across from the gallery though...No wonder Bistro 1855 gave me a free drink afterwards...maybe I generated some business for them!
