“The Tea House Diary” at Volumes Zurich art book fair

I am briefly breaking the digital summer pause to announce that I am joining the art book fair Volumes Zurich. This 1-day summer edition of the art book fair takes place on Saturday August 28 between 12 and 8pm. The art book fair location is at the address shown in the image above. This is a roof-covered outdoor venue, near the Kunsthalle.

Volumes Zurich is a Zurich based non-profit collective. This collective supports independent art book publishers by introducing them to a larger audience in Switzerland. It does so through the Volumes Zurich art book fair and publishing related events. I am pleased to join other artists and publishers committed to making beautiful books.

Showcasing “The Tea House Diary” and my artistic process

I will be showcasing my latest edition, the Tea House Diary. In addition, I will also bring other editions available, such as “One Moment, One Drawing”.

If you are in Zurich then, it would be a pleasure to welcome you at my editions table. I am planning to keep a corner of that table as my “studio” for the day. This corner will act as an open window into my edition development process so to speak. I will share the background to my editions and my painting process. Also, where the next edition in development – “Autumn in Japan” is currently at.

Just in case you have not noticed it yet, first editions are always a little special around here. Owners of the first edition series of “The Tea House Diary” launched this year receive a signed and sealed copy.

Looking forward to greeting some of you in Zurich!
