An Essay About Batik From Some Years Back

October 17, 2013

batik essay on history context tradition art culture

Stumbled upon this article while browsing around. It was written by Syed Muhd Hafiz who was then a student at LASALLE College of the Arts, he called me and crossed the road to interview me at Nafa (Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts) – I was doing my MA then. Time has passed since 2007 but this gem is still a good read. Hafiz is now curator at the soon to open National Art Gallery of Singapore.
