A series of illustrations I submitted to the D&AD Young Blood 2017 Competition
Grief Is The Thing With Feathers: Book Cover Design
Grief is the thing with Feathers by Max Porter is a poignant yet whimsically paced narrative of a family that's stricken with grief by the loss of its mother. Grief comes in the form of a crow. It was my favourite read of 2018 and so I decided to design a book cover for it.
Shiro Oni Residence Group Show 2019 / シロオニ展覧会 ２０１９年
Shiro Oni Artist-in-Residence Group Show 2019 I was one of 8 artists in Shiro Oni's 2019 July art residency intake, situated in a small town in Gunma. It was a culturally immersive experience punctuated by wholesome interactions with locals, a summer festival, hot spring trips and a group exhibition at the end.
In solidarity with the Amazon Forest. This work was done with the belief that all our collective efforts can amount to something in the ways of a better world.
From Jesus to Yeezus
An exploration on the parallels between conventional worship and fanatical behaviours surrounding celebrity worship, bringing the definition of religion into question. I found Kanye West (aka Yeezus) to be an excellent case study as, despite his faith in Christianity, his egotistic persona and god complex paints a fascinating picture of the modern person’s struggle between submission and empowerment. In congruence with the time-honoured vocabulary of Christian art, the artwork is filled with symbolism and iconography which references from the life of Yeezus. This is the mythology of Yeezianity and the human race.
A visual metaphor of purgatory. A transitional phase as a that's full of motion but no progress.
Various Illustrations Pt.1
Various Illustrations I've done over time.
A Gamer's Progress
A modern spin on William Hogarth’s “A Rake’s Progress”. A classic tale of how one’s inherent vices has led to a gradual albeit dramatic fall from grace. It’s a familiar tale, and one worth retelling in a different context. Here you’ll find the steady decline of a privileged kid who succumbs to his gaming addiction.
Made of China
Made of China (2014) Exhibited: Mighty Jaxx’s Xmas Cookie Party Venue: Front Row, The Raffles Hotel Arcade I was one of the selected artists asked to take part in this custom toy event, where each artist was to customize a Jason Freeny gingerbread man. Seeing as how this was a western festive event taking place in Singapore, a westernized asian country, I decided to comment on globalized nations with oriental roots.
I was commissioned by the Independent for an illustration to support Will Self's article regarding the nature of the UK's mental health facilities and its correlation with the stigma surrounding mental health.
