Drop-In Printmaking Workshop with Raj Bunnag
Join Raj Bunnag, 2022 MFA candidate whose work is featured in Myth & Memory: Selected Works by the MFA Class of 2022, for a special hands-on printmaking workshop during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk!
In this drop-in workshop, visitors will be able to make their own tiny stamps using hand-carved blocks made by Bunnag. Watch as Bunnag demonstrates his printmaking techniques and create your own small prints to take home. This workshop will take place outdoors and attendees are welcome to stay for as long as they like during the hour and a half-long program.
Materials for this event have been generously donated by Speedball. Presented in connection with Myth & Memory: Selected Works by the MFA Class of 2022. Part of the Chapel-Hill Carrboro 2nd Friday ArtWalk.
Raj Bunnag is a Thai American artist living and working in Durham, North Carolina. He received his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2012 with an emphasis in Printmaking. He is currently an MFA candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Bunnag’s practice examines systematic racism inherent to the foundations of the US, its institutions, and its domestic/global policies, through themes in the lineage of print. In his more personal work, he is researching the ideas and baggage that come with self-identity as the son of immigrants and what it means to be a non-white body existing in white spaces. He has shown work nationally and internationally as well as received numerous awards for his relief printed work.
