Acrylic on Canvas
This work highlights the idea of finding strength and growth in face of hardships. Especially in this time during the pandemic, it is important for us to see hope for the future and breakthrough all the challenges. I hope people will continue to stand strong amidst adversity and obstacles, and not being afraid of the uncertainties. This work is also about encouraging people to make a change to our surroundings and awaken the strength within each of us.
Acrylic and colour pencil on paper
This work hopes to bring out the idea of constructing meaning and beauty in the world that we live. We may not be in the best of situations with limited space and resources, but we should continue to hold the spirit of constantly building our vision and dreams. The sparrow and gemstones are inspired by the tale of the Happy Prince, which is about the statue of Happy prince sacrificing the gem stones on his body and asking his friend, the sparrow, to deliver them to people in need. I also wanted to bring across the idea of how each of our sacrifices, great or small, is able to create something beautiful in our world.
