My aim for this work was to help people discover the memorial building and its architectural detailing.

I was influenced by two artists: Chetan Kumar, who inspired the different coloured backgrounds, and Stephan Wiltshire who led me to do fine detailing with black ink.

One challenge I faced was when etching my plates. I had to etch some of them twice as I had not etched them deep enough the first time, so the print would not come out dark enough.
