Visit to Juhari Said's Akal di Ulu

We were eager to meet up with Juhari Said, one of Malaysia's dedicated printmaker. So much has he contributed to printmaking in Malaysia during his 2 decades of printmaking, always pushing to further the art. He's life and work is best summarised in Prof. A. Rahman Mohamed's essay.  Recently he has found a new direction as chronicled by Dr Tony Donalson.

Here's a photo essay of our visit :
