Purely prints in Mae Rim

This monoprint is titled “Emotional Awareness”.

The Tita Gallery in Mae Rim is featuring the works of alumni artists from Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna at Wat Jet Yot. The brainchild project from a young group of artists, the exhibition features 50 print-pieces from young Thai artists. They formed a group making a series of charming woodcut prints, mono prints, dry points, lithograph, mezzotint, paper block prints, collage, silk screen, and cross-hybrid of all prints techniques. The most arresting work in this exhibition is not by any individual but is the ostensible spontaneity of the group conscience efforts.
