“MY EX­PE­RI­ENCE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Harper's Bazaar Art -

with fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy pushed me to break the per­cep­tion of beauty. Art is more than just a tech­nique; it is about learn­ing how to cre­ate freely with no con­straints. Col­lage, pho­tog­ra­phy, and paint are the main medi­ums that make up my work. I take in dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences from each of them, but I don’t like to call my­self a painter or a pho­tog­ra­pher. I’ve cre­ated cap­sule col­lec­tions with de­sign­ers, and other forms of art, but most re­cently, I com­posed a song with two mu­si­cians for a video I cre­ated. And next, I am work­ing on Fergie’s new al­bum cover! Why pick one form of cre­ative medium? For me, the process of cre­at­ing al­ways be­gins with a con­cept, sketched out us­ing dif­fer­ent tech­niques such as brush­strokes and col­lages. Then, I will be­gin de­vel­op­ing the fi­nal im­ages, which will in­clude an amal­ga­ma­tion of all the me­dia’s I’ve used from start to fin­ish. It’s beau­ti­ful to be able to see a port­fo­lio of work within one art­work. This is why I be­lieve in­stinct plays an im­por­tant role in al­most ev­ery­thing, in terms of art. I trust my gut when it comes down to cre­at­ing and evolv­ing. With that be­ing said, I re­alise that there is a big in­flu­ence of Re­nais­sance art in some of my works; I like the pure shapes and clear lines that build the body. Also, I feel at­tracted to the way con­tem­po­rary art breaks that rule; they’re op­po­site flows that con­verge in an in­spir­ing way.”
