Edward Fu-Chen Juan is an emerging artist based in Vancouver. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California Institute of the Arts. His current practice is printmaking on paper with water-based ink extracted from natural ingredients. He forages endemic flora of the chosen region and extracts colour to create ink paste for silkscreen printmaking. The process was developed through his cultivation of an ongoing cultural exchange with artisans he has previously worked with in Oaxaca, Mexico. The knowledge of colour extraction was shared with him to further develop his art practice in new ways. It aligns with his passion as a nature lover and appreciation of traditional craftsmanship
