Hello friends, especially those based in Kuala Lumpur. I have exciting news to share:
Artikarya is an artist incubation and art reproduction platform, supported by Yayasan Hasanah. Over the past year I’ve been involved with it as one of the first batch of artists.
As part of the exhibition, I'll have Geeky Baju pieces for sale as 18x24" giclée prints, each in a limited edition of 10. These come tagged and authenticated with RFID labels. They're archival, gallery quality, and have stunning colour accuracy - Wesley, the master printer at Ilford, showed me how to use his system to proof and calibrate so the prints are exactly as I envisioned them. The first time I've worked so closely with a fine art printer! When the platform launches this Saturday you will be able to purchase them online if you’re interested.
Some of the other artists' works have been reproduced on canvas or rare hand-made washi paper; it's really quite amazing to see.
The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture will be officiating the launch. You’ll need to RSVP at the Eventbrite page before coming.
Hope to see you there!
