The STPI exhibition focuses on the artist's's mid-career prints that are now part of the Signapore Art Museum Collection. Their scale and visual composition are a testament to the artist's daring nature to push the medium, as well as his own abilities. There is a Picasso inspired portrait of Celia, his mother, that is particularly beautiful, and large very colorful prints, with lots of patterns and jazzy colour combinations.
