We were introduced to the wonderful silkscreened art, silkscreened books and prints of Raksasa during their show at our favourite Riso print and art studio – Knuckles and Notch! Happy that they are making a trip from KL to Singapore to support Illustration Arts Fest 2017!
Raksasa Print Studio is a collective of artists who specialise in the art of silkscreen printing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We aim to share our knowledge and love for the art form to anyone willing to learn, as well as provide affordable and accessible printmaking facilities and services to the local community. Raksasa promotes the illustrative and design aspects of silkscreen through exhibitions and teaching. We also work collaboratively with artists from many parts of the world, working in tandem with them to create innovative artworks.
