Originally from Hong Kong, I have lived in Asia, Europe and North America before working
on 9_9 which is a three-year long project leading to its publication in Italy.
Life has been about the place without but even more about the space within.
I seek adventure in the ordinary and simplicity in the extraordinary.
Art helps everyone. Being an artist is a privilege and being one bears a responsibility.
Globalisation, migration and consumerism among many common human issues have generated questions
regarding our identity as individuals and in relation to the others.
Following Fragments of Grey Matter, 9_9 is a sequel attempt in examining the multi-layered
questions of identity and reality through relating with other artists and expressing
"our" identity through our shared self-portraits.
It is a symbolic expression of our collective search for our unique voice in a shared humanity.
It is a celebration of living in diversity and a journey towards
our roots, a sense of belonging via community-building.
Art has become a tool, a shared experience as well as a visual result
which can then be a source of inspiration for many.
I invite viewers of my work to ask questions and construct their own.
We can all be Artists in Life.
