A master of craft

A master of craft. [Newspaper] (2019)


Met recently at the Borneo Craft Festival Sarawak 2019, the friendly Albot shared that it has always been his passion to hand paint prints. “I used to do it as a hobby, but after I stopped working, I work on this full time.”

The Bidayuh lad who originated from Bau, Sarawak first dabbled in hand-painting artworks in 2005. He recalled painting on a huge piece of paper — one he felt extremely proud of. “I became active after 2010 as I realised that I have talent in this,” he explained. It was then that he saw a market in hand-painted motifs as souvenir pieces.
