A contemporary artist.  I followed my dream and my passion for art to come to Florence to study and paint.  I exhibit nationwide in Italy, Hong Kong, London, Paris, Brussels and USA and won numerous international awards.




ARTIST STATEMENT


Art is my passion and it is definitely in my soul.  I like daydreaming and have lot of ideas, so it is kind of the source of an inspiration to my painting.  Retrospective of my youth day, I grabed anything to draw, eg. highlighter or ball pen while I was daydreaming at the classroom.  It was absolutely freeminded and I enjoyed it very much in my dreamy world.  Color is an essential element in my art.  I express my emotion through my colour palette and my emotions also influence my observation of the objects.  Creativity and experiment are also essential  elements in the process of creating my artworks, so other than traditional media of oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings, I use different painting techniques, such as gold leaf either real or fake, air brush, alcohol ink and spray paint to achieve the pictorial effect which it comes across in my mind.  In some paintings, I paint myself either self-portrait, nude form or solely in an outlining format as a gesture of liberty and independence, sometimes in a romantic atmosphere embedded with florals.   Very often I paint with my subconsciousness mixed with my fantasy.  I like immersing myself in my artistic world, sort of virtual world really that I can free my mind and soul.
