Screen-print on Coffee-stained Watercolour Paper/ Coloured Paper

Nyonya Wallpapers were created for the background of the Being Nyonya series.
My grandmother used to design nyonya kebayas, and these designs are the inspirations for the wallpapers created. My version of kebaya designs for the wallpapers combine some elements of her grandmother's designs, evolved, and infused with a tinge of modernity. This began by breaking down the existing kebaya designs into the basic elements from my grandmother's scrapbook of kebaya snippets, then developing them in sketches, then translating them into screen-prints.
