The first Thai-Mexican Printmaking Exchange Program was organized to create an opportunity for printmakers from Mexico and Thailand to find a shared ground.  Mexico has a long-lasting tradition of printmaking under many traditional and contemporary techniques, which has partially branched out into multiple currents and new expressions in recent years.  Although still considered a recent artistic expression, printmaking in Thailand is finding its way in the mainstream visual arts ecosystem. With the collaboration from the two nations, a diversity of fresh proposals coming from new expressions of senior artists or from young exponents is rapidly filling the exhibition spaces.

Chula is the place to discover one’s true individuality and the years I spent here were most enjoyable.
