About the Exhibition
Mr Chippa The Woodblock Caver of Bagru is a children’s picture book created from hand carved woodblocks and handprinted using traditional print practices. The exhibition provides an opportunity for all but particularly children to engage and participate in an experience of viewing that embraces understanding of the world around them, diversity and empathy in a joyful and meaningful way.
Lee has combined art, design and culture in this wonderfully engaging exhibition with illustrations, Kathputli puppets, travel journal paintings and an insight into the creative process.
