Blessed to have met and learnt from Kamal Dollah @kamal_arts_ltd, a creative down-to-earth Batik artist from Singapore. He values his time painting very seriously and he dives in whole-heartedly when you are willing to learn. Kamal’s Batik stamps are uniquely designed with themes that can make every Singaporean proud of their country!β˜ΊοΈπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ They are not for sale, but they are used to create his Batik kits which I highly encourage my friends to get if you ever visit Singapore. He has touched the hearts of many communities, even famous artists like Singaporean @barryyeow.🌎 May you be touched as well! πŸ’«βœ¨

In my search for other Singaporean Peranankan Batik artists, I had help from @singaporeheritagetiles who referred me to Batik consultant Tony Sugiarta of @anerdgallery. It opened a world of wonders as I got to see his diversity of hand-made Batik clothes and accessories at @anerdstore within a sustainable-brand-conscious community called @thegreencollective.sg. I also got to visit Tony’s curated exhibition which showcased classic Batik artworks hand-made by the following artisans:
@rekna_indri 
@cemethikstudio
@batiktulislasem_kresnoaji
@tjipliesilk
@yancanting
Each work is paired with calligraphy designed by artists featured in @inkinginbatik.

So did I find what I was looking for?
No.
But i found greater purpose as a Batik artist by showing others that they matter.
One man’s pot can be someone else’s treasure. 
Hand-drawn in beeswax, one of my many mandalas will be displayed in UK with @thebatikguild. More details later. πŸ˜‰

Preparing beeswax drawings for 24 students paid off in a huge way at my Batik workshops at #dekazerne in the @omdwoerden event on 11 September 2021. Thank you to all parents and children who have participated ~ you made a difference to the soul of the #openmonumentendag event itself! Thank you also for showing your appreciation for my mini-Batik exhibition! It was very moving to be able to speak Indonesian again, with the Moluccan community, who shared with me their stories of growing up in the building where I was giving the workshop. Thank you @nederpeltgommer , @gemeentewoerden.officieel, and the @openmonumentendag event organisers for the opportunity to touch so many lives through the art of Batik, and be warmed by so many hearts of #woerden. ❀️
