PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF
An Asian urban artist + Designer + Sometimes a party monkey.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?
My style makes heavy references to chinese culture, from mythology to dialect to identity. I managed to create an interesting juxtapozed mash of contemporary urban styles with traditional chinese visuals and influences.
PLEASE SHARE WITH US YOUR WORKING PROCESS
I do a lot of travelings around the world, gaining influences and challenges to push myself. Understand a culture, digest it, and output the final artwork.
HOW DOES YOUR ENVIRONMENT INFLUENCE YOUR ART?
It’s pretty tough in Singapore, as everything is too globalized. I rather slow down my pace and look into details. The only advantage i have is that Singapore offers access to most cultures… Therefore i get my references and can do my researches easily.
WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?
From UK band Gorillaz creator Jamie Hewlett, to Asian star Bruce Lee, a good pal MC Yan from LMF hkg, to my cremates of RSCLS.
ANY LAST WORD?
Stop and smell art!
