MEET THE ARTIST
Hello! I am Jiahui, a self-taught Singaporean stamp artist.
I received a (First Class!) Honours Degree in Chemistry from the National University of Singapore but these days I am better known for creating colourful handcarved rubber stamps that are based on an assortment of foods, found objects and daily muses, with a dash of adorable blushing faces.
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 upon printing, is a constant reminder to be patient, and mindful.
My work has since been featured on various print and online media such as Buzzfeed, Channel News Asia and The Straits Times.
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. I am also a certified stamp-making instructor with Hankeshikun in Japan.
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. I get nervous around people but I don't bite! Drop me an email at email@example.com for a quick chat.
