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
The exhibition concludes October 4, so enjoy the drive, have a coffee when
you get there and enjoy the diversity of works on display at Tita Gallery.
