Jack Clayton Exhibition
14 February 2018 10:00 am
Soma Art Cafe
A series of woodcuts and illustrations inspired by street culture in Vietnam will be exhibited by artist Jack Clayton at Soma Art Café in District 2 until Feb. 14.
From London, Clayton is an illustrator and printmaker who specialises in woodcut printmaking. He relief prints his blocks by hand and often uses the reduction method to add multiple layers of colour from a single block of wood.
Recently Clayton has been looking at modern Vietnamese culture and traditions that he experiences in while living in Ho Chi Minh City. His recent series of woodcuts draws inspiration from the streets of Vietnam’s biggest city, in particular street sellers, children’s games, cafes, drinking culture, expressions and sayings.
Soma Art Café is at 6b Le Van Mien, Q2, HCMC. For more info on the exhibition, go to facebook.com/events/1527055474056865
