Q&A with Samuel Tupou
Why do you make art?
To exorcise the inner dialogue.
What’s your relationship to printmaking?
Screenprinting has been a constant in my practice ever since I became interested in making art. I enjoy the craft of printmaking, using tools, equipment and process to convert ideas and thoughts into realised artworks.
How did you get interested in printmaking?
My high school art teacher suggested that I try screenprinting some of my drawings, I was immediately captivated by the colours, sharp edges and smooth finishes of the ink.
