Tell us about your art practice.
I started to create pop-up art interventions in the past years. My works always associate to the place and the surrounding people, it involves me adding-on or tweaking something at a specific location, and create something different to the people there.
What kind of medium do you use in your works?
I like mixed-media – especially when mixing found objects with computer art or printed materials, the result always bring a unique visual experience.
What is your creative process like?
I usually search for an appropriate way to execute my inspiration. I do on-site research to trace the history and the development of a certain place. I gather the elements and they will become a part of my work.
How did you begin your art journey?
When I was young, I spent lots of time on drawing vehicles and buildings. Drawing gives me a state of calmness. I resumed my journey when I began to take up studying the master of visual arts programme.
“Art makes me re-think about our lives. It is the way to present our perceptions towards past and present.”
