MEET THE ARTIST
Hello! I am Jiahui, a self-taught Singaporean stamp artist and a certified stamp-making instructor with Hankeshikun in Japan.
I am known for posting colourful handcarved rubber stamps that break the stereotype - a great assortment of food, daily objects and famous landmarks along with adorable smiley faces, on my social media accounts. My work has since been featured on various print and online media such as Buzzfeed, Channel News Asia and The Straits Times.
In 2011, I carved my first stamp out of an eraser and a pen knife. Watching a plain piece of rubber slowly being carved away, before finally revealing its design when inked and printed, is a constant reminder to be patient, and mindful.
In the many years of mastering the delicate art of stamp making, I have developed a set of techniques ranging from handling of tools to special tips in inking and printing, which I now teach in my workshops.
My style is lighthearted, clean and happy - this central theme runs through my personal projects, workshops, as well as commissioned pieces. Clients that I have worked with include Unilever, Estee Lauder, Takashimaya, amongst others.
P.S. Introverted as I am, I love speaking at schools to share my unusual entrepreneurial journey to inspire young minds! Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for a quick chat.
