Inspired by a heritage tile I spotted at my great-grandfather's ancestral temple on Cantonment Road. Seven blocks are needed for this technically challenging print - and lots of chocolate to keep me going!
My latest work Singapore Story 1 will be part of the Imago Mundi show in Italy later this year!
Imago Mundi, meaning 'World Picture' in Italian, is an art project being run between Wina gallery, Indonesia, & Fondazionesarenco & Fondazionesarenco Benetton, Italy. It was great to meet Antonius Kho from Wina gallery recently and talk about his involvement.
According to the website, Imago Mundi is the collection of works commissioned and collected by Luciano Benetton on his travels around the world, involving, on a voluntary and non-profit basis, established and emerging artists from many different countries.
Inspired by local Victorian era majolica tiles, I've incorporated place names around Singapore in Chinese and English text. Kisses and Hugs From Singapore is a similar collage work on a larger scale and available for sale.
