CLEO (Malaysia) - - ART JAM -

When did you know that this is your pas­sion?

It’s as kill I picked up and just never put down. I haven’ t stop mak­ing sculp­ture sand things ever since I first started learn­ing, and I al­ways, al­ways trust my gut.

Why did you choose to work with wood?

I ’m al­ways ex­tra drawn to nat­u­ral materials such as wood. Some­thing about its rugged and rough char­ac­ter­is­tics mo­ti­vates me to put my en­tire soul into each art­work, and that’ s just how I’ ve al­ways treated my work.

Where do you find in­spi­ra­tions for your work?

Puakumbu, a tra­di­tional tex­tile pat­tern used by the I ban peo­ple and made in my home­town, Bor­neo. I trans­late th­ese puakumbu tex­tile pat­terns into wooden con­tem­po­rary sculp­tures.

What is the com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor in all your work?

All my works have re­ally fine and in­tri­cate de­tails.

What would be the i deal sculp­tor ’s stu­dio?

A big space, fur­nished with all the nec­es­sary equip­ment and most im­por­tantly, sur­rounded by na­ture. Every artist needs fresh air.
