A series of illustrations I submitted to the D&AD Young Blood 2017 Competition
Various Illustrations Pt.1
Various Illustrations I've done over time.
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.
Artwork for Industria 2019
I was invited by the organisers of Industria (Индустрия), a pioneering design and art festival based in Izhevsk, Russia, to contribute an artwork that pays homage to the city's industrial roots. I sought to visualise the correlation between their industrial heritage and the comforts it allowed its residents by making a connection between their factories and love for sauna.
你是谁？Who Are You?: Solo Exhibition
Who Are You? Is the summation of my 2-month-stay in Zhujiajiao, Shanghai, China. It is a self reflective visual diary encircling my ruminations as an ethnically Chinese foreigner in China. All works as well as promotional material were illustrated and designed by me.
The Book Funeral
Shiro Oni Residence Group Show 2019 / シロオニ展覧会 ２０１９年
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.
All The People, So Many People
All The People, So Many People is an ongoing visual mixtape which consists of visualised song suggestions from close friends who have been asked the question "Pick a song that summarises our friendship." The idea is that these visualised suggestions will paint an honest portrait of myself. As the wise Jim Rohn once said "We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with".
Yellow Peril Supports Black Power
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.
