BBM: How’s life treating ya?
Pretty much tough. Taking quite a beating from projects and commissioned works but an occupied life is better than none.
BBM: What was your first major experience with art and how did you know it was for you?
When I was invited to exhibit my works at The Singapore Arts Museum.
BBM: Give our readers a little history about yourself:
I love doodling and sketching since I was young, drawing all sorts of cartoons that I saw or imagined. Soon after, I began to pick up the spray can in 2004, started off as an illegal graffiti writer for a year before I began to surface from the underground, joining graffiti competitions and from then on it became a passion and started to pursue in the art and design in school of Interactive Media Design in Temasek Polytechnic. I’ve been practicing arts for 10 years now, and now it’s more of an obsession rather than a passion. Opened up my mind, learning different mediums of art forms like traditional batik painting, art installations and new media technology. I don’t want to be labeled, but being able to explore different mediums and infuse them into a new level art piece.
BBM: You have a diverse portfolio, what would you say is your passion?
I would say, I am more inclined in graffiti, as it’s a free form, energetic platform, where you are able to move freely and let your body just stretch as far as it can. With graffiti being the art of rebellion, it’s an art form with the idea of freedom of speech and free art for the public. The origin of graffiti is always contemporary, you may never know how long it will stay, maybe it will disappear or get dissed the next day. It’s like life, you have to let go of the past and move on.
