HK Magazine: Have you always been an artist?
Cara To: I’ve always enjoyed drawing. I got into graffiti while working in post-production for an advertising company in Amsterdam. I’d been living the way my parents and society told me to, and even did two years of biochemistry in university before switching to game design. I decided to stop waiting for someone to show me how it’s done, and fulfil my childhood dreams. I quit my job and moved to Hong Kong, where my parents are from. It was partly to discover my roots, and also to put myself through a personal boot camp to hone my skills.
