“Printmaking allows me to express my creativity and observations in a different manner,” said the 69-year-old, who also specialises in oil painting and Chinese contemporary ink painting.
“Printmaking is not an easy technique to master. The printing press machine and colours are also very costly. I adapted by converting rubber press machines into printing press machines and made my own colours.”
....The full-time artist and part-time teacher was speaking at the opening of Malaysia Master Printmaker: Loo Foh Sang Solo Show 2013 exhibition at Samadee Studio, Bukit Jalil.

“Printmaking can be categorised into four main categories — relief techniques such as woodcut and metalcut, intaglio techniques (etching and engraving), planographic techniques (monoprinting and lithography), and stencil technique (silkscreen printing),” said Loo.
He employed different techniques for the 46 pieces of print works featured in the exhibition.
.... Malaysia Master Printmaker: Loo Foh Sang Solo Show 2013 will be held until June 2 at Samadee Studio, 6-1, Block 4, Jalan Jalil Jaya 4, Jalil Link, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur (same row as Hailam Kopitiam, above Tutti Frutti).
The exhibition is open to the public from Tuesdays to Sundays, from 11am to 6pm.
