HANDJOB

 

HandJob is a celebration of all things hand-made and analogue. A year-long printmaking initiative where 7 Associate Printmakers respond to different facets of heritage through means of printmaking, the project exposes the grittiness, spontaneity, and sheer splendour of this infinitely adaptable medium.

Up for grabs every month are: 20 unique and limited edition prints by each of our Associate Printmakers. The signed artworks will be distributed at mystery locations across the island; chosen specially by the Associate Printmakers, the HandDrop locations reveal their inspiration behind the prints.

Sam Lo (SKL0)



Visual Artist

Sam Lo (aka SKL0/ your friendly neighbourhood Sticker Lady) is a Singapore-based visual artist whose work revolves around social commentaries fueled by daily observations of her surroundings and research into the sociopolitical climate. Her intrigue with the concept of culture and bold execution in some of her earliest forays into street art dubbed her the ‘Sticker Lady’, a nickname lovingly given by the city in reference to the saga that was birthed from her work in the streets. Since then, the artist's work—whether installations, large scale murals or digital designs—has been centered on understanding the world around us and how our actions are interdependent on each other.
